Performance Of Abr : Case Study Using Glycerin Pitch As Substrate
The wastes of oleo chemical industry is categorize as wastewater and glycerin pitch. Treatment of waste water of oleo chemical industry which contains glycerin pitch using Anaerobic Baffled Reactor (ABR) was proven to be effective in treating medium level concentration (influent COD of 15.000 mg/l) with COD removal efficiency of 72%. For overall, ABR performance in reducing organic compound, influence significantly only with the feed concentration and biomass losses. Increasing of feed concentration from COD of 15.000 mg/l to COD of 18.000 mg/l followed with the increasing of biomass losess of 27%.
