Abstract

The microbial consortia in sulphate-reducing bioreactors with different operating conditions were studied and compared to the sulphate reduction efficiencies. The results showed vast differences in microbial communities among the reactors. The fraction of sulphate-reducing bacteria correlated with the bioreactor performance. This study sheds new light to the biological sulphate-reducing process applied in bioreactors, which is traditionally seen as a black box.
