Paper Title:
A Study of the Operating Parameters of a Sulphate-Reducing Fixed-Bed Reactor for the Treatment of Metal-Bearing Wastewater
  Abstract

An upflow fixed-bed sulphate-reducing reactor has been set up and monitored for the treatment of metal-bearing wastewater. Zinc has been chosen as the target metal to be sequestered from influent water stream at initial concentrations ranging from 50 to 400 mg/l and initial pH values ranging from 3 to 5. Main operating parameters of the reactor, such as the composition and content of electron donor, electron acceptor, sulphate and metal removal capacity, have been monitored during ten months of continuous operation. The results obtained have shown that the reactor has a considerable capacity of completely reducing sulphates for initial concentrations up to 7,200 mg/l, completely removing soluble zinc for initial concentrations up to 400 mg/l and completely removing Total Organic Carbon (TOC), for initial concentrations up to 1,500 mg/l.
