Title

Anaerobic treatment of brewery wastewater and the effects of enzyme addition

Abstract

"Anaerobic treatment is becoming increasingly important to reduce costs of industrial wastewater disposal. However, there is a limited understanding of anaerobic technology due to the vast differences in wastewater streams and the variability in any biological process. This thesis focuses on the application of anaerobic treatment of brewery wastewater for organics and solids reduction. A pilot-scale EGSB anaerobic reactor containing aggregated biomass was used to study the effects of temperature on COD removal efficiency...The second portion of this research was an investigation of the potential application of commercial enzymes to improve anaerobic digestion of concentrated brewery solids"--Abstract, leaf iii.
