Dairy wastewater, MBBR, IFAS Hydraulic Retention Time (HRT)
Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) is a leading technology of biological solution for wastewater treatment based on the aerobic principle. In this study, lab scale experiments were done by using MBBR with Integrated Fixed-film Sludge(IFAS) process and polypropylene media to analyze BOD and COD removal from wastewater of dairy industries. The system efficiency in removal of BOD and COD was examined at a different rate of Hydraulic Retention Time (HRT) of 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5 and 3 hours. Similarly BOD and COD removal efficiency of 60% and 88% respectively was achieved with 3hrs HRT and also settling time was observed as 4 hours. Finally this study indicates that MBBR with IFAS process and polypropylene media as biofilm carrier posses very good removal of BOD and COD from Dairy Wastewater.
