  • Organic substrate act as electron donor and sulphate act as electron acceptor and hence gets reduced to sulphideResulting in formation of sulphidesAlso hydroxide precipitation wl increase the pH of sewage which wl affect the functioning of UASB
  • Lower the organic content lower the efficiency of sulphate reductionMeans if high sulphate content is there and high COD content is there COD/SO42- ratio could be less.
  • AIS and AAS are categorised on the basis of metals absorbed or adsorbed on the biomass.Mg and Al are not removedHeavy metals from the sludge can be removed by HCl , 8% phosphoric acid with hydrogen peroxide
  • Gin et al. (2002) developed an equilibrium model for describing the relationships between important parameters for lead sorption by algae, which was derived through a thermodynamics approach. The results of the application of a sequential extraction partitioning procedure indicated that an important part of the lead content is carried by the residual phase and also a significant percentage of lead in the organic and reducible fraction represents the bio-availability of lead.
  • Activity of SRB and MPB are optimum at COD/S ratio 2:1Lead removal efficiency observed was around 80-85%Gas production was optimum at ratio of 2:1Also the optimum pH observed was around 7.5-8.5
  • Methanol was getting converted into methane and in VFA in period I of R1

    10. 10. Competition between SRB’s and MPB’s investigated by Isa et al. (1986) and following reaction occurs:<br />COD/SO42- ratio = 0.67 (stochiometrically) for equal SRB and MPB activity.<br />At lower COD/SO42- ratio, SRB predominates over MPB. Hence ratio of 1.7-2.7 was suggested by Choi and Rim (1991) so that methane production and sulphate reduction are not affected.<br />

(2005)<br />The effect of sulphur source on the performance and metal retention of methanol-fed UASB was investigated.<br />Different sources of sulphur were supplied, eg. Sulphate or L-cysteine.<br />Methanosarcinabarkeri perform assimilatory action.<br />L-cysteine is a ligand that will complex with metals present in the wastewater.<br />Dissimilatory by SRB<br />Sulphate can be reduced by<br />Assimilatory by methanogenic bacteria<br />
