Title: Isolation and selection of phenol-degrading microorganisms from industrial wastewaters and kinetics of the biodegradation
Author: Rigo, M
Alegre, RM
Abstract: Among 22 species of microorganisms isolated from phenol-containing wastewaters, Candida parapsilopsis was found to be capable of growth on a medium with 1 g/L phenol. Kinetic parameters of phenol biodegradation in a batch reactor were determined by measuring biomass growth rates and phenol concentration as a function of fermentation time. The Haldane equation described cell growth adequately, with kinetic constants mu(max) = 0.174/h, K-S = 11.2 mg/L and K-i = 298 mg/L.
