Effect of hydraulic retention time (HRT) on the biodegradation of trichloroethylene wastewater and anaerobic bacterial community in the UASB reactor

This study utilizes the unique merits of an 8-L laboratory upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactor for treating synthetic wastewater containing trichloroethylene (TCE). The reactor was operated at different hydraulic retention times (HRT) of 25, 20, 15, 10, and 5 h. TCE removal efficiency dec...
