Grey water characteristics and treatment options for rural areas in Jordan.
Low water consumption in rural areas in Jordan had resulted in the production of concentrated grey water. Average COD, BOD and TSS values were 2568mg/l, 1056mg/l and 845mg/l, respectively. TheExpand

Treatment of strong domestic sewage in a 96 m3 UASB reactor operated at ambient temperatures: two-stage versus single-stage reactor.
A 96 m3 UASB reactor was operated for 2.5 years under different conditions to assess the feasibility of treating strong sewage (COD(tot) = 1531 mg/l) at ambient temperatures with averages of 18 andExpand

Effect of increasing the surface area of primary sludge on anaerobic digestion at low temperature.
Two sets of reactors were operated at 15°C and at sludge retention times (SRTs) of 65 days and 30 days, respectively. Each set was operated at six different mixing velocities. Shear forces providedExpand
