- ... Lime manufacture in the UK has resulted in the generation of a number of alkaline sites (>pH 11.0) with complex indigenous microbial populations. Within the present study, retrievable cotton samples were used to investigate the fate of cellulose, the primary carbon source, within three sites aged from ≈25 to 140 years. Following 3 months incubation in situ, biofilms had formed on all cotton sample ...

- ... In this study, the denitrification performance of the mixotrophic biological reactor was investigated under varying Fe(II)/Mn(II) molar ratio conditions. Results indicate that the optimal nitrate removal ratio occurred at an Fe(II)/Mn(II) molar ratio of 9:1, pH of 7, with an HRT of 10 h. When the reactor was performing under optimal conditions, the nitrate removal reached 100.00% at a rate of 0.11 ...
