A chemostat coculture consisting of a phenol-degrading organism, P. putida, and a Cr(VI)-reducing strain, E. coli ATCC 33456, was evaluated for its potential to simultaneously remove phenol and Cr(VI). Steady-state operating conditions were obtained with near complete removal of phenol and Cr(VI) under a range of influent concentration of phenol (233-2541 mg/l), influent Cr(VI) (1-10.3 mg/l), and liquid detention time (2-6.7 days).
