To investigate the effect of hydraulic retention time (HRT) and temperature (T) on bacterial community structure and volatile fatty acids (VFAs) production of an acidogenic process, and VFA production and changes in the bacterial community in three identical automated anaerobic continuously-stirred tank reactors were analyzed using response surface analysis (RSA) and nonmetric multidimensional scaling (NMDS). For RSA, 11 trials were conducted to find the combination of T and HRT under which VFA production was greatest; VFA production was affected more by HRT than by T. To identify the bacterial community structure in each trial, DNA from each experimental point of the RSA was analyzed using denaturating gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE), and eight bacteria species were detected. NMDS was conducted on band intensities obtained using DGGE, and bacterial community structure was affected more by T than by HRT. Taken together, these results suggest that VFA production during acidogenesis was more dependent on the physicochemical properties of acidogens, such as their specific growth rate or contact time with of substrates, than on changes in the microbial community.
