|Abstract:||The effect of the influent COD concentration on the performance of anaerobic
fluidized bed reactors treating winery wastewaters from grape-red wine (GRWW) and
guava wine production (GWW) was studied at laboratory scale. Two reactors were used:
one treating GRWW (AFB1) and the other processing GWW (AFB2). The behaviour of
these reactors packed with Chilean zeolite as biomass immobilization support was compared at mesophilic temperature (35 °C). Influent COD varied from 1–24 g L
the HRT was maintained constant at 1 day throughout the experiment. During the experiment, influent and effluent pH, TVFA, COD and methane gas production were determined. COD removal efficiency increased with the influent COD up to a maximum of
around 19 g L
for GRWW and up to around 22 g L
for GWW due to the increase
of the concentration of phenols. Process performance was slightly better with guava winery wastewater than with grape-red winery wastewater due its lower phenolic content.
During the period of non-inhibition the methane yield was virtually constant.|
