Cluster structure of anaerobic aggregates of an expanded granular sludge bed reactor.


The metabolic properties and ultrastructure of mesophilic aggregates from a full-scale expanded granular sludge bed reactor treating brewery wastewater are described. The aggregates had a very high methanogenic activity on acetate (17.19 mmol of CH(4)/g of volatile suspended solids [VSS].day or 1.1 g of CH(4) chemical oxygen demand/g of… (More)
