Abstract

A culture of SRB growing in lactate was incubated at different pH values in the range of 5.8 to 7.0. Highest growth rates were observed at pH 6.6. Under gás (H2S) stripping conditions the specific growth rate decreased with the undissociated acetic acid produced. An inhibition of SRB growth of 50% was observed for undissociated acetic acid concentrations of approximately 54 mg/L.
