Abstract

Phosphate-accumulating bacteria have their use in the process of enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR). Using the mentioned bacteria, by immobilization on suitable mineral carriers, higher concentrations of bacteria are achieved which directly correlate to better phosphorus removal. In the research the capacity of immobilization of Acinetobacter junii as the phosphate-accumulating bacteria on the mineral carrier was being determined, as well as the bacterial capability to remove phosphate. Influence of the mineral carrier on the researched bacteria was being determined as well. Mineral carrier that was used was terra rossa. The research showed that terra rossa was a good carrier of the phosphate-accumulating bacteria Acinetobacter junii. Terra rossa used even alone had considerable phosphorus uptake.
