A Review on Packed Bed Removal of Organic Matter from Wastewater

Authors(1) :-Sunil Jayant Kulkarni

Packed bed reactor finds wide application in wastewater treatments. Packed bed reactors can be employed for aerobic and anaerobic biological treatment of wastewater. They can also be used for physico-chemical treatments such as activated carbon adsorption of various pollutants from wastewater. Packed beds with up flow and down flow mechanisms are widely used for wastewater treatment. Use of fluidized bed offers some advantages such as better contact and better distribution of material. Removal of organic matter from the effluent is major objective behind most of the treatment processes. Packed bed and fluidized bed reactors can be used efficiently for organic matter removal. The present review summarizes the packed and fluidized treatment of the wastewater for removal of organic matter.
