This paper presents the characterization of specific organic constituents (carbohydrates, proteins and lipids) in raw sewage and in the anaerobic and aerobic effluents of a demo-scale (500 inhabitants) UASB- trickling-filter system. The evaluation of such parameters was carried out for two operating conditions, either without sludge recirculation (experiment I) from the trickling filter to the UASB reactor or with sludge recirculation (experiment II), for sludge thickening and stabilization, in… CONTINUE READING
