Principles of Facilitated Granule Formation

A priori, a lot of methods can be applied to facilitate bacterial cells aggregation and formation of microbial granules:

1. addition of flocculants;

3. addition of suspended carrier for the formation of granule with particle inside;

4. addition of previously formed granules;

5. addition of disrupted, previously formed granules;

6. addition of enrichment culture of fast aggregating cells;

7. addition of pure culture of fast aggregating cells;

8. optimal aeration;

9. optimal mechanical effects facilitating cell aggregation (mechanical granulation).
