Industries such as margarine, meat packing, dairy, slaughterhouse, edible oil (palm and olive oil) generate large amount of effluents. Strict environment laws in numerous countries has forced these agro-industries to apply suitable wastewater treatment in order to reduce the organic pollution load before discharging the effluents to receiving waters. Anaerobic treatment comprises a very attractive and suitable method for these industries, where the effluents frequently are composed of mixtures… 
A full-scale UASB reactor for treatment of pig and cattle slaughterhouse wastewater with a high oil and grease content
This paper discusses the performance of an 800m3 full-scale UASB reactor in treating meat-packing plant and slaughterhouse effluents containing high concentrations of oil and grease (O&G) (413-645
Treatment of dairy wastewater in UASB reactors inoculated with flocculent biomass
This work assesses the possibility of using flocculent sludge in UASB reactors applied to the treatment of dairy wastewater and studies the effect of hydraulic retention time (6, 8, 12 and 16 h) on
Anaerobic Treatment of Milk Processing Wastewater
Anaerobic processes are widely used for the treatment of milk and dairy effluents. This technology has been subjected to significant development and real-scale application in the last few decades and
Optimum cycle time for intermittent UASB reactors treating dairy wastewater.
Brazilian Journal of Chemical Engineering USE OF A GRIFFITH TUBE TO EVALUATE THE ANAEROBIC SLUDGE SEDIMENTATION IN A UASB REACTOR TREATING AN EFFLUENT WITH LONG-CHAIN FATTY ACIDS
This paper proposes to study the sedimentation characteristics of anaerobic sludge, by determining the settling velocity of sludge granules with the Griffith Tube. This is a simple, low-cost method,

TLDR
The SMA tests showed that the intermittent operation causes a shift in the microbial populations towards a better adaptation for the degradation of complex substrates confirmed by the meaningfull contribution of methane production through a pathway other than acetoclastic methanogenesis observed in the biomass taken from intermittent UASB reactors.
Intermittent Operation of UASB Reactors as a Strategy to Enhance Anaerobic Degradation of Dairy Wastewaters
This investigation is related to the optimization of the anaerobic degradation of dairy wastewater by means of intermittent operation of UASB reactors. The intermittent operation consists of a series

Performance and granule characteristics of UASB process treating wastewater with hydrolyzed proteins
UASB process consistently removed 84% of COD in wastewater with hydrolyzed proteins for loading rates up to 32 g-COD/L/day, corresponding to a food-to-microorganisms ratio of 0.81 g-COD/g-VSS/day, at
New Technologies for Anaerobic Wastewater Treatment
TLDR
The presently available insight into the sludge granulation process is briefly presented, together with the strategy to be applied for performing a proper first start-up and secondary start- up of UASB reactors, viz. using granular seed sludge.
Anaerobic treatment of slaughterhouse waste and wastewater
Within a series of processes, slaughterhouses produce large amounts of different wastes and wastewaters. The problems are complex: many slaughterhouses are located in the centres of the cities,
