Abstract

This article explains that thermo cool, plastic beads, cork, teak wood and perlite were tried as carrier materials in the lab-scale reactor towards treating high strength organic wastewater by using inverse anaerobic fluidized bed reactor (IAFBR). Organic wastewater of great strength (molasses) is pronounced for its high chemical oxygen demand (COD) of 45,000 to 75,000 mg/l and low pH values of 4.3 to 5.3. The results of this study highlighted the selection, physical properties and performance of carrier materials on biomass retention. This study has also clearly indicated that perlite proves to be a suitable carrier material for high biomass retention and improvement of the reactor performances in a short time of operation.
