Borja-Padilla, R. and Banks, C.J. (1993) Thermophilic semi-continuous anaerobic treatment of palm oil mill effluent Biotechnology Letters, 15, (7), pp. 761-766. (doi:10.1007/BF01080152).

Record type: Article


A semi-continuous anaerobic digester was used to degrade palm oil mill effluent (POME) under thermophilic conditions. A volumetric loading of 15.1 kg COD/m3·day equivalent to a hydraulic retention time of 4.3 days was maintained for two months. This rate is significantly faster than the rates achieved in previously reported studies. Soluble COD removals were greater than 96%.
