  author={Rajinikanth Rajagopal and Noori M. Cata Saady and Michel Torrijos and Joseph V. Thanikal and Yung-Tse Hung},
This review article compiles the various advances made since 2008 in sustainable high-rate anaerobic technologies with emphasis on their performance enhancement when treating agro-food industrial wastewater. The review explores the generation and characteristics of different agro-food industrial wastewaters; the need for and the performance of high rate anaerobic reactors, such as an upflow anaerobic fixed bed reactor, an upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactor, hybrid systems etc… CONTINUE READING
