Abstract

"The main purpose of this study was to determine the effect of cadmium on anaerobic digestion. Metal concentrations in the form of regular and slug doses were considered. The possibility of acclimating anaerobic bacteria to higher cadmium levels was studied, and attempts were made to reestablish digestive action through re-seeding in digesters overcome by high cadmium concentrations"--Abstract, page [ii].
