Abstract:

Advantages of anaerobic fixed film reactors over other biological treatment units are 1 No limits set on influent soluble organics concentration. 2 No limits set on organic loads applied. 3 The lowest sludge biomass yield of all available bioreactors. 4 The lowest NP requirements. 5 The availability of optional operation in plug-flow and completely mixed mode through recycle. 6 The lowest level of attention required and associated low operating costs. 7 Feasibility of seasonal, 5 daysweek or otherwise intermittent operation. 8 Highest resistance to toxic and inhibitory compounds. 9 Low area real estate requirements. 10 Odorless operation. 11 Generation of high CH4-concentration above 70 gas.
