Title
The influence of short-term starvation on aerobic granules
Abstract

Evidence shows that almost all aerobic granules can only be cultivated in sequencing batch reactor (SBR). Compared to continuous process, the unique feature of SBR is its cycle operation, which results in a periodical starvation in the reactor. So far, the effect of such a periodical starvation on aerobic granulation process remains unknown. Thus, this study investigated the responses of aerobic granules to the respective carbon-, nitrogen-, phosphorus-, potassium-starvation and also their collective effects in terms of cell surface hydrophobicity, surface zeta potential, extracelluar polysaccharides content, specific oxygen utilization rate and biomass growth. Results showed that short-term C-, N-, P- and K- starvations would pose negative effects on aerobic granules, e.g. reduce EPS content, inhibit microbial activity, weaken structural integrity and worsen settleability of aerobic granules. This study likely provides primary evidence that the substrate and nutrients starvation would not contribute to the stability of aerobic granules in a significant way.
