Thermophilic (55-65 degrees C) and extreme thermophilic (70-80 degrees C) sulfate reduction in methanol and formate-fed UASB reactors.

The feasibility of thermophilic (55-65 degrees C) and extreme thermophilic (70-80 degrees C) sulfate-reducing processes was investigated in three lab-scale upflow anaerobic sludge bed (UASB) reactors fed with either methanol or formate as the sole substrates and inoculated with mesophilic granular sludge previously not exposed to high temperatures.
