Abstract The laboratory study using upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactor in high strength wastewater containing tetrachloroethylene (PCE) was carried out to develop granular sludge in the presence of PCE (2 mg/l) and to assess the potential of UASB reactor in treating PCE containing wastewater. The granules of 0.25–4 mm size were observed after 82 days having mostly Methanothrix and Methanosarcina bacteria. Influent PCE concentration of 5–50 mg/l decreased to less than 0.23 mg/l (98.5… CONTINUE READING
