microorganismflocculantpollution treatment

Microbial flocculants are a kind of natural macro-molecular flocculants and will be broadly used in the future. They have been studied in details in a dozen of countries,such as U. S. A. and Japan. This paper presents a review on the progresses of microbial flocculant studies and application, including microorganisms which produce flocculants, chemical property, genetic bases, microstructure, mechanism of flocculation and ability of the microbial flocculants,as well as the influence factors and culture conditions for their production and extractingg methods. This paper also provides some examples of the microbial flocculant application in environmental pollution treatment.
