Abstract: An aerobic immobilized cell bioreactor (ICB) was operated with food-processing wastewater from a fast food restaurant, fed at six different hydraulic retention times (HRTs). The average COD removal efficiencies were found to be higher than 90% at the HRT of 6.9 hours. Immobilized biofilm enabled the bioreactor to start up easily, to have stable treatment performance, and to recovery rapidly form organic overloading, pH shock, and process failure.
