Periodic oxygen supplementation (A-O) strategy was proposed to improve pollutant removal and enhance bioresource production of photosynthetic bacteria (PSB). The A-O strategy obtained higher COD (91.4%) and NH4+-N (78.6%) removal compared with the non-oxygen supplementation (N-O) strategy, which was similar to the continuous oxygen supplementation (C-O) strategy. A-O strategy achieved the highest biomass concentration of 1338.5 mg/L. Bacteriochlorophyll and carotenoids concentration in the A-O strategy were 24.9–31.1% and 15.1–23.7% higher than those in the other two strategies; coenzyme Q10 concentration and content were 52.5% and 21.3% higher than that in the N-O strategy. The metabolomic analysis showed that the A-O strategy enhanced the tricarboxylic acid cycle after fumaric acid formation and β-alanine metabolism, then caused higher biomass accumulation. The A-O strategy reduced the inhibition of photophosphorylation by oxidative-phosphorylation and maintained both characteristics. Hence, A-O might be an economic strategy for enhancing pollutant removal and bioresource production in PSB-based wastewater treatment.
