Optimized Reaction Conditions for Removal of Cellular Organic Matter of Microcystis aeruginosa During the Destabilization and Aggregation Process Using Ferric Sulfate in Water Purification

The efficiency of removal of cellular organic matter (COM) of cyanobacteria Microcystis aeruginosa from water with ferric sulfate is influenced primarily by coagulant dosage and reaction pH. Therefore, optimization of the reaction conditions is a prerequisite for efficient purification of surface waters. Because the isoelectric point of COM occurs at a low pH, the purification of waters containing this organic matter should take place in an acidic pH range. It was also found that proteins are removed more efficiently than other organic substances (mainly polysaccharides).
