1. Both mixed and pure cultures can be used for cultivating aerobic granules. Generally, mixed culture is employed for degrading a mixture of toxic compounds, and pure culture is useful for degrading a specific toxicant.
2. Aerobic granules are used to treat wastewater containing higher organic loading rates as well as fluctuations in organic loading rates.
3. There is a strong contradiction regarding the effect of DO, HRT and the starvation period on biogranulation.
4. Further research is needed to explore the feasibility of using stored granule as inoculums for rapid startup.
