A Study on Advanced Treatment for Coking Wastewater with Biological Activated Carbon Based on Efficient Degrading Flora
The removal efficiency of degrading flora which has been constructed is investigated in biological carbon process through the variation of COD and chromaticity. The results show that the efficient degrading strains can reproduce on the activated carbon quickly；the biological activated carbon reactor，in which degrading flora to coking waste water are inoculated，is adopted to carry out the treatment of wastewater，in such a way the COD and chromaticity in outflow water can remain at a lower level (with COD about 50mg/L and chromaticity about 50 degree). The average COD removal rate is 71% and the chromaticity removal ratio is 95%.
