Anaerobic digestion of brewery wastewater using a fixed film reactor



Anaerobic digestion of brewery wastewater using a fixed film reactor



Canadian Agricultural Engineering 31(1): 61-64



A laboratory-scale anaeroic fixed-film reactor receiving brewery wastewater was studied over a range of hydraulic retention times at 35.degree.C. Ale yeast wastewater could be successfully digested in a fixed-film reactor, with methane production of 1.18-1.43 litre membrane per litre of reactor volume per day and 70-82% reduction in chemical oxygen demand. The fixed-film rector performed-well at hydraulic retention times of 8 and 10 days without pH control.
