  • The advantages and benefits of aerobic cometabolism

    Aerobic metabolism yields the energy-transferring molecule TPA at a much higher rate than anaerobic metabolism. The higher energy yield produces a greater viable population. The oxygenase enzymes involved in the cometabolism of chlorinated solvents are not induced by the presence of contaminants, so a high microbial population has a proportionately high yield of oxygenase enzymes. Aerobic ...

  • Response surface modeling of bioremediation of acid black 52 dye using Aspergillus flavus

    Bioremediation is an efficient process to remove metals and dyes from solutions using different micro-organisms. In the present study, the efficiency of growing Aspergillus flavus (isolated from the effluent of an electroplating industry) to treat a synthetic solution of acid black 52 dye (a trivalent chromium complex dye) was investigated. Maximum removal of dye and chromium was observed to ...

  • Energetic analysis of Pseudomonas fluorescens growth in aerobic chemostat culture

    Bioenergetic analysis of the growth of Pseudomonas fluorescens on phenol chemostat culture was carried out. The data were checked for consistency using carbon and available electron balances. Similar estimates were obtained using Pirt's model based on Monod approach and a modified model based on substrate consumption rate being rate limiting. Coupled with the covariate adjustment estimation ...
