Industrial Wastewater Treatment

Implementation of an anaerobic treatment plant for hypersaline waste water

The anaerobic reactors of the Joint Wastewater Treatment Works Bitterfeld-Wolfen (GKW) are fed with methylcellulose waste water with a salt content of about 20 g/l NaCI. The anaerobic treatment of hypersaline waste water has made it possible to extend the range of applications for the use of anaerobic processes by 100 %, measured in terms of electrical conductivity.
