Abstract

Acclimated enrichment cultures capable of using chlorinated organic compounds as their only source of carbon and energy were obtained from municipal wastewater. Substrate utilization rates were compared for the target substrate alone and in the presence of alternate substrates (nutrient broth). The results show that both substrates are used concurrently. Inhibition effects as well as overall enhancement of utilization of the chlorinated organic compounds are described.
