- In this study, the biomass and the growth rate of attached algae were monitored to compare
the characteristics of attached algae growth between two materials, ceramic and cement.
Microbial community analysis was also performed to examine attached algae and microbes in
the drainage canal of sedimentation basin in a water treatment plant. The growing rate of
attached algae in accumulated areas was faster than early growing areas. In addition, the
biomass of attached algae growing in the cement materials was evidently lower than the
ceramic ones. These results suggest that ceramic materials can be applied to the water
treatment plant for improving water quality and maintenance. From microbial community
analysis, the dominant quinone type of attached microorganisms in the water treatment plant
was plastoquinone (PQ)-9 and vitamin (V) K-1. Especially, PQ-9 increased gradually based
on the accumulated period. Although the materials and the total biomass were different, the
comparison between cement and ceramic quinone analysis implies that microbial ecology in
the same area would not be changed distinctively.
