Study on biomethonization of waste water from jam industries

S Mohan, Neena Sunny
Bioresource Technology 2008, 99 (1): 210-3
Anaerobic digestion of wastewater from jam industries was studied in a continuous reactor with different organic loading rates (OLR) and the optimum organic loading rate was 6.5 kg COD/m(3)/day when it was operated with three days HRT. The biodegradability of wastewater in batch experiments was about 90%. The removal efficiency of total COD and soluble COD were found to 82% and 85%, respectively. The specific methane production was 0.28 m(3)/kg of COD removed/day.
