Summary This paper focuses on a simultaneous removal of trichlorfon and glucose that was added as carbon source for degradation requirement of trichlorfon. A hybrid bioreactor, having both suspended and magnetically immobilized biomass, was used for investigating this removal of both substances. To evaluate the respective roles of these two types of biomass, a mathematical model was developed and also verified well with experimental results. It has been found that the suspended biomass plays a key role in removing both substances in the system. This is due to complete coexistence of both trichlorfon-degrading and glucose-removing bacteria completely in each type of the biomass. Such a system would be applicable to the treatment of complex industrial wastewaters that contain easily biodegradable organics as well as refractory pollutants.
