Abstract: Monod KineticCo-substrate Automotive industry Molasses a b s t r a c t A study of the anaerobic treatment of an automotive-industry wastewater was conducted at mesophilic temperature in batch mode. In this study, molasses was used as a co-substrate.The experiments were carried out with samples prepared in 500 ml bottles using a shaker at 35 • C. The concentration of inoculum was prepared to be 5000 mg/L VSS. Substrate-inoculum ratios (SIR) were 0.75 and 1.0. Molasses-wastewater ratios (MWR) were 0.3, 1, and 3…
