Characterization of biomass from a pilot plant digester treating saline wastewater



Characterization of biomass from a pilot plant digester treating saline wastewater



Journal of Chemical Technology and Biotechnology 63(4): 384-392



The evolution of biomass contained in a pilot-scale digester treating wastewater from a sea-food processing factory (15-45 g Chemical Oxygen Demand (C.O.D.)/dm and high salinity) was studied for 2 years. During this period, different effluents have been treated and several operational conditions were followed. Laboratory-scale experiments were carried out to determine the sludge methanogenic activity and the salinity adaptation of the biomass which developed in the digester.
