Abstract: Abstract The high concentration of biodegradable constituents in waste‐water derived from bagasse‐based paper mills warrants the consideration of an anaerobic biotechnology process to recover biogas and reduce the pollution load. An anaerobic down‐flow fixed‐film bark reactor process was studied to treat waste‐water generated from bagasse‐based paper mills. At the anaerobic stage, 90–95% of the total chemical oxygen demand (COD) was removed at loading rates of 3–18 kg COD m%−3 day%−1 without supplying any nut…
