This research focuses on an evaluation of the performance of a new process being called the “anaerobic sequencing batch reactor” (ASBR). The ASBR operates on an intermittent, fill and draw regimen. This results in alternating high substrate/low substrate (feast/famine) conditions. The high substrate conditions right after feeding results in high rates of substrate conversion to biogas. The low substrate concentration near the end of the react sequence results in efficient bioflocculation and solids separation.
