Abstract

An increased awareness of the necessity to protect surface waters from the high chemical oxygen demand (COD) effluents from many industries, including abattoirs, dairies and food processing plants, has led to a renewed interest in economic treatment systems, in order to avoid the cost of disposal the local water treatment authority (Bull et al., 1984). The costs involved in aerating high strength waste waters in traditional aerobic treatment plants have led to a resurgence of interest in the anaerobic digestion system. Cillie et al. (1969) concluded that for waste waters with a COD of 4 g 1−1 or more anaerobic processes are cheaper, whilst at a COD of 20 g 1−1 anaerobic systems cost 25 % of equivalent aerobic processes.
