Abstract

The performance of combined treatment processes, namely coagulation and Sequential Batch Reactor (SBR) to treat effluent from food processing industry was evaluated. The experimental study was conducted in a batch mode using pilot-scale reactor. The parameters used in assessing the treatment system were BOD5, COD and SS. The optimum amount of chemicals for the coagulation process ranges from 20 mg/L to 80 mg/L for coagulant and 60 mg/L to 220 mg/L for polymer while the optimum pH ranges from 5.5 to 7.0. The compliance of Standard A of the Environmental Quality Act was met using the combined process with SBR retention time of 6 hours.
