Negavely charge kaolin parcles 25.5 g/L of EPS was produced in crude glycerol fortiﬁed wastewater sludge. EDTA gave highest EPS extraction efﬁciency. Isolated strain EPS produced exhibited high ﬂocculation activity (>90%) in kaolin solution. High efﬁciency of metal removal was achieved using 35 mg/L EPS. 0 60 120 180 240 300 360 420 480 540 600 660 720 780 840 Incubaon me (h) Al Cu Fe Ni Zn Heavy metal removal ar ti c l e i nf o ab stra ct Article history: Extracellular polymeric substances synthesis by Cloacibacterium was affected by different concentrations Received 18 February 2016 of glycerol in the medium.
