Cooxidation of some nonionic surfactans
Languages of publication
Biodegradation was carried out in the laboratory continous-flow activated sludge system and the river water test.In the river water tests, the source of carbon and energy for the microorganisms was nonionic surfactant or nonionic surfactant and glucose.The river ware tests were conducted with and without plants as Cryptocoryne.it has been found that the nonionic surfactant with chain branching was readily biodegradable in the cooxidation process by the microorganisms of activated sludge and microorganisms from the river water test.
