In this paper, a new Michaelis–Menten type chemostat model with time delay and pulsed input nutrient concentration in a polluted environment is considered. We obtain a ‘microorganism-extinction’ semi-trivial periodic solution and establish the sufficient conditions for the global attractivity of the semi-trivial periodic solution. By use of new computational techniques for impulsive differential equations with delay, we prove and support with numerical calculations that the system is permanent. Our results show that time delays and the polluted environment can lead the microorganism species to be extinct.
