Pilot plant results of anaerobic treatment using granular biological fluidized bed treatment for a number of industrial wastes is presented. Wastes containing from 5,000 to 54,000 mg/ℓ, were treated with 65 to 95 percent COD removal in 0.3 to 4.9 days hydraulic detention time. Organic loadings of 3 to 38 kg COD/m3-day were used. An energy comparison showed anaerobic treatment to produce a positive energy balance compared to an energy need for comparable activated sludge treatment.
