The role of rhizofiltration and allelopathy on the removal of cyanobacteria in a continuous flow system

Abstract:

A continuous flow filtration system was designed to identify and quantify the removal mechanisms of Cyanobacteria (Microcystis aeruginosa) by hydroponic biofilters of Phalaris arundinacea compared to synthetic filters. The filtration units were continuously fed under plug-flow conditions with Microcystis grown in photobioreactors. Microcystis cells decreased at the two flow rates studied (1.2 ± 0.2 and 54 ± 3 cm3 minˉ1) and results suggested physical and chemical/biological removal mechanisms...
