Abstract

Serratia rubidiae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Escherichia coli K12 have been studied for their ability ofBisphenol A removal from aqueous systems and biofilm formation on activated granule carbon. Math-ematical equations for biodegradation process have been elaborated and discussed. P. aeruginosa wasfound the best strain to be employed in the process of Bisphenol A removal. The yield in BPA removalof a P. aeruginosa biofilm grown on GAC and operating in a fluidized bed reactor has been evaluated.The results confirm the usefulness in using biological activated carbon (BAC process) to remove phenolcompounds from aqueous systems.
