Interaction of Zeolites and Phosphate Accumulating Bacteria, pp. 439-467 $100.00
Authors:  (Jasna Hrenovic - Univ. of Zagreb, Faculty of Science, Zagreb, Croatia)
Zeolites display many useful applications in the field of pollution abatement.
Phosphate contained in the wastewater can cause eutrophication when it is discharged
into closed natural water bodies. During the last years, the enhanced biological phosphate
removal (EBPR) became preferred process of phosphate removal from wastewater. The
process of the EBPR from wastewater is based on the activity of phosphate-accumulating
bacteria. Currently attention is being drawn to the implementation of zeolites in the
wastewater treatment process in order to achieve a higher efficiency of the phosphate
removal from wastewaters. Since the nature of the interaction of zeolitic materials and
phosphate-accumulating bacteria is almost uninvestigated up to date, this will be the main
thematic which this review summarizes.
Depending on the type and particle size of zeolite, different interactions between
material and phosphate-accumulating bacteria were observed. Natural clinoptilolite tuffs
are excellent bacterial carriers and the main mechanism of interaction is immobilization
of bacteria onto the surface of material and increase of the total bacterial biomass
concentration. With the aim of better removal of phosphate from wastewater the surface
modified clinoptilolite tuffs also gain importance. In spite, the synthetic zeolites display
the toxic effect against phosphate-accumulating bacteria.
