Resumo

In an increasingly competitive and demanding world, industrial and population-wise, water has gained an increased value and is more than ever a scarce and valuable resource. As a consequence of civilization development, the variety and amount of industrial chemicals being released into the environment has raised. Indigenous microbial communities in biotreatment processes may not be effective in removing xenobiotic contaminants. This work aims to combine extracted extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) withs pecialized degrading strain Rhodococcus sp. FP1 for the production of granules capable to degrade 2-fluoropenol-a toxic compound present in several industrial effluents–for further bioreactor bioaugmentation. The strength of the synthetic granules was teste dusing a shear stress test. This study presents a potential application of a recovered resource from wastewater treatment and will potentially assist the existing industrial processes of wastewater treatment with aerobic granular sludge (AGS).
