The kinetics and characteristics of phosphate-limited algal cultures were studied on a laboratory scale in order to: Evaluate kinetic parameters of algal growth in relation to phosphorus concentration; Derive an expression describing the growth rate-limiting nutrient relationship; and Determine desirable or optimum design and operating parameters for effective phosphorus removal by algal systems. Phosphorus limiting algal growth was described by the Monod growth model for specific growth rate. Maximum specific growth rate for the algae tested was 4.19/day, and all growth characteristics were significantly affected by variations in pH and temperature of the culture. Removals of moderate concentrations of phosphorus in excess of 85% can be accomplished by continuous algal cultures. (Author)
