Abstract: Anaerobic biodegradation of phenol was demonstrated at up to 1000 mg/L in batch serum bottle studies and 1900 mg/L in anaerobic filters. In batch serum bottle studies, concentrations of 750-3000 mg/L inhibited initial acetic and propionic acid degradation rates by 50%. Phenol utilization followed zero order kinetics in batch reactors with initial phenol concentrations of 30-960 mg/L and final concentrations of 3-30 mg/L. (Author abstract. )
