Co-degradation of resorcinol and catechol was studied in a catechol acclimated up flow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactor. Synthetic binary aqueous solution having a total concentration of 1000 mg/L with the resorcinol/catechol (R/C) ratio of 1/19, 1/9, 3/17, 1/4, 1/3, 3/7, 2/3 and then 1/3 was fed at various time intervals to the UASB reactor with a fixed organic loading rate of 5.7 kg COD/m(3) d and hydraulic retention time of 8h. The reactor was operated over a period of 145 days after… CONTINUE READING
