PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE STATIC GRANULAR BED REACTOR
The Static Granular Bed Reactor (SGBR) is a new and innovative process for the treatment of low to medium strength wastewater. The SGBR was simple to operate and produced a high quality effluent with low chemical oxygen demand (COD), low volatile fatty acids (VFA), and low suspended solids concentrations. Two SGBRs were operated at ambient conditions (22 ± 2°C) for a period of eighteen months. The reactors had exceptional organic removal at all HRTs. Methane production was near theoretical production based on COD conversion. Granules were observed to increase in size and had significantly different morphology from the original seed granules during the course of the study.
