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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
