Treatment of distillery wastewater using an anaerobic downflow stationary fixed-film reactor: performance of a large plant in operation for four years



Treatment of distillery wastewater using an anaerobic downflow stationary fixed-film reactor: performance of a large plant in operation for four years



Water Science and Technology 22(1-2): 361-372



The performance of a downflow submerged packed-bed anaerobic reactor treating distillery effluent was monitored over a 4-yr period. After initial problems with biomass retention, the organic loading of the reactor has been steadily increased to c. 12 kg COD/msuperscript 3 d. Soluble COD reductions of up to 95% have been achieved.
