Abstract: WineHigh-rate a b s t r a c t Biodegradability and activity tests of winery wastewater at 37 • C using inoculum from a paper mill suggested hydrolysis as the rate limiting step with hydrogen the predominant pathway to methane. Scaling-up to a Hybrid-EGSB showed that after 100 days acclimation at moderate temperatures (20 ± 2 • C) a 70 ± 2% COD removal is achievable, applying an OLR of up to 15.32 kgCOD m −3 day −1 and an SLR of 3.83 kgCOD kgVSS −1 day −1 , respectively. Conventional operation and mesophilic t…
