High strength milk permeate derived from ultra-filtration based cheese making process was treated in an anaerobic moving bed biofilm reactor (AMBBR) under mesophilic (35 degrees C) condition. Total chemical oxygen demand (TCOD) removal efficiencies of 86.3-73.2% were achieved at organic loading rates (OLR) of 2.0-20.0 g TCOD L(-1) d(-1). A mass balance model gave values of methane yield coefficient (Y(G/S)) and cell maintenance coefficient (k(m)) of 0.341 L CH(4) g(-1) TCOD(removed) and 0.1808… CONTINUE READING
