Three anaerobic/aerobic sequencing batch reactors (SBRs) were operated for 5 12 years. Volatile fatty acids (VFAs) in influent wastewater for two of the SBRs (the G... Academic Article uri icon


  • A sequencing batch wastewater treatment process was studied in a 200 L air-lift reactor (ALR), using a synthetic wastewater. A modification of the SBR process was introduced to exploit the ALR's geometric structure using an upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) mode of feeding. The mean COD removal efficiency of the process was extremely high. A study was made of the change in the filtered COD...
