|Abstract||The aim of the present study was to explore the effect of sulfide, the end-product of sulfate-reduction, on reductive dechlorination by microbial cultures dominated by Dehalococcoides spp., acclimatized to varying degrees to the presence of sulfate. Results from experiments in batch reactors with different sulfide concentrations showed that dechlorination was inhibited to a higher degree with increasing sulfide concentration in a culture partially acclimatized to sulfate. On the contrary, dechlorination was similar and incomplete irrespectively of the magnitude of sulfide concentration in cultures acclimatized to sulfate. Hence, elimination of sulfide may not necessarily improve dechlorination efficiency, at least over the short term.|
