Degradation of Carboxydiphenyl Ether via Bioaugmentation
Two diphenyl ether-degrading bacteria, Pseudomonas pseudo-alcallgenes strain POB31O and P. sp....

Phytoremediation of Hazardous Wastes

Enzyme Enhanced Stabilization of Soil and Fly Ash
The purpose of this research was to determine if enzymes could be utilized to increased the strength and stability of soil mixed with fly ash. Samples were prepared with and without the...

Microbial Reaction Rate Expressions
The subject of this technical note is the equation of saturation kinetics that has been used to describe adsorption, enzyme conversions, microbial growth, and other rate phenomena. All...

Clarification of Book-Mill Effluent by Enzyme-Alum
Effective removal of colloidal and suspended solids from the paper mill effluent can be obtained by the use of an integrated enzyme-alum coagulation system. Starch contained in the mill...

Temperature-Toxicity Model for Oil Refinery Waste
A continuous flow kinetic model to predict the effects of temperature on the toxicity of oil refinery waste to the algae Selenastrum capricornutum...

Metal Toxicity to Sewage Organisms
The Michaelis-Menten model of enzyme inhibition is a convenient method to measure toxicity and to give insights to toxic behavior in pure culture and simple substrate conditions. A linear...

Hydrolysis of Lipids in Wastewater
Colloidal and supracolloidal lipid materials (grease) constitute an abundant, high-energy food source in biological wastewater treatment processes. Biochemical oxidation of these materials...

Toxicity Measurements in Activated Sludge
Toxicity measurements in activated sludge show that the Michaelis-Menten theory and the theory of enzyme inhibition reveal reproducible data on toxicity and also may reveal, insights into...
