Kinetics aspects of a high rate modified anaerobic process (HRAMP)

  • 9 Accesses


It is demonstrated that the equation that describe the behaviour of anaerobiosis in the liquid anaerobic reactor of HRAMP is S = So {1 - (Y + ν . ln I}, S and So are COD concentrations,Y and ν are kinetic constants and I depends on the ratio of sludge inoculation flow to the reactor-influent
