"Determining an effective operating window for a thiocyanate-degrading mixed microbial community" - A.Wynand van Zyl, Susan T.L. Harrison, Robert P. van Hille

  • SCN effluent is generated during gold production
  • Biological ASTER™ process developed to treat this process water
  • Desire to broaden the commercial application 
  • Biodegradation of SCN by mixed microbial community assessed 
  • Effect of SCNconcentration, temperature and pH explored
  • Helped establish an effective operating window for the ASTER™ process
