Development of granular sludge in the UASB-treatment model waste waters containing gelatine

Abstract

Protein containing model waste waters with 5 and 15 g/1 gelatine respectively were treated in UASB-process. The start-up was controlled pH-auxostatically and in both experiments the development of granular sludge with good sedimentation properties occured. The sludge flocks in the investigation with higher gelatine concentration and concomitantly higher NH 4 + -concentration in the process were somewhat smaller and of lower density.
