The mono-azo dye Reactive Red 195 (RR 195) is a widely used color compound in the textile industry. As many other colors, it is persistent and difficult to be removed from water with conventional processes. The present study investigates biological decolorization of RR 195 under alternate anaerobic-aerobic conditions in a laboratory scale Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) containing a mixed culture and fed with a biodegradable carbon source. Different values of the Sludge Retention Time (SRT), Hydraulic Retention Time (HRT), influent color and organic carbon loadings were adopted during the experimental activity and their effects on color and Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) removal efficiencies and process kinetics determined. The optimal operating conditions were found to be: 800mgl-1 influent COD, 50d SRT and a 24h-cycle. Under these conditions, the maximum color efficiency of 97% was achieved for a 40mgl-1 RR 195 in the feed. Some inhibition was present at influent color loadings above 40mgl-1, which was confirmed by the application of the Haldane model. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.
