Performance evaluation of packing materials in the removal of hydrogen sulphide in gas-phase biofilters: Polyurethane foam, sugarcane bagasse, and coconut fibre
Abstract The main objective of this work was to investigate three packing materials (polyurethane foam, sugarcane bagasse, and coconut fibre) for biofiltration of a gaseous mixture containingExpand
Long-term operating performance of a poultry slaughterhouse wastewater treatment plant
Abstract This paper evaluates the performance and process stability of a full-scale poultry slaughterhouse wastewater treatment plant in removing organic matter over a 4-year operation. TheExpand
Anaerobic fluidized bed reactor with expanded clay as support for hydrogen production through dark fermentation of glucose
This study evaluated hydrogen production in an anaerobic fluidized bed reactor (AFBR) fed with glucose-based synthetic wastewater. Particles of expanded clay (2.8‐3.35 mm) were used as a supportExpand
Pentachlorophenol (PCP) dechlorination in horizontal-flow anaerobic immobilized biomass (HAIB) reactors.
This study verifies the potential applicability of horizontal-flow anaerobic immobilized biomass (HAIB) reactors to pentachlorophenol (PCP) dechlorination. Two bench-scale HAIB reactors (R1 and R2)Expand
Granules characteristics in the vertical profile of a full-scale upflow anaerobic sludge blanket reactor treating poultry slaughterhouse wastewater.
The performance and the granules characteristics of a 450 m(3) -UASB reactor operating for 1228 days, treating poultry slaughterhouse wastewater with an average COD reduction of 85% was examined.Expand
Importance of the combined effects of dissolved oxygen and pH on optimization of nitrogen removal in anammox-enriched granular sludge
The combined effects of dissolved oxygen (DO) and pH on nitrogen removal were investigated in a laboratory-scale sequencing batch reactor (SBR) with anammox-enriched granular sludge obtained from aExpand
The use of upflow anaerobic sludge blanket reactors in the treatment of poultry slaughterhouse wastewater.
This work studied the performance of the dissolved air flotation (DAF) system and the start-up and the operation of two 450 m3 UASB reactors in a poultry slaughterhouse in Sorocaba, Brazil. The DAFExpand
Poultry slaughterhouse wastewater treatment plant for high quality effluent.
This paper assesses a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) regarding the technology used, as well as organic matter and nutrient removal efficiencies aiming to optimize the treatment processes involvedExpand
Hydraulic and organic rates applied to pilot scale UASB reactor for sugar cane vinasse degradation and biogas generation
Abstract A pilot-scale upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactor (120 L) was operated for biogas production by vinasse degradation. The reactor was operated for 700 days using a recirculationExpand
Down-flow fixed-structured bed reactor: An innovative reactor configuration applied to acid mine drainage treatment and metal recovery.
A down-flow fixed-structured bed reactor (DFSBR) was operated for 277 days treating a mixture of synthetic substrates simulating an iron-rich acid mine drainage (AMD) and the soluble fraction of aExpand
