Cyanide metabolism was studied using starved, acclimated heterogeneous cultures in an aerated microfermenter containing glucose as substrate. Tests using K14 CN indicated that up to 50% of the cyanide was metabolized as evidenced by 14CO2 production. Experiments employed initial solids concentrations between 483-1963 mgl and initial glucose concentrations between 100-600 mg l. Initial cyanide concentration was 10 mg l.
