Abstract

Phosphate-accumulating bacteria have their use in the process of enhanced biological phosphorus removal from wastewater. The immobilization of phosphate-accumulating bacteria on mineral carriers leads to a higher concentration that enables a more effective phosphate removal from wastewater. The aim of this study was to determine the ability of phosphate-accumulating bacteria Acinetobacter junii and mineral carrier to remove phosphate from wastewater. Four different samples of red soil were used. Red soil showed a relatively high percentage of phosphate removal (25,7-31,1 %), in combination with a phosphateaccumulating bacteria A. junii this percentage is two times higher (50,0 – 55,6 %).
