Microbial insights into enhanced trace organic biodegradation potential in water treatment
MetadataShow full item record
The widespread detection of anthropogenic trace organic chemicals (TOrCs) in environmental and drinking water supplies presents a critical challenge to current water reuse technology. While many of these compounds are susceptible to biodegradation, microbiological responses to relevant biostimulation methods remain poorly understood. The research presented here explores the viability of propane biostimulation during water treatment by an integrative approach coupling a well described pure bacterial strain to microbial community characterization and enzyme queries in more complex biofiltration ...
