Summary of "Biological wastewater treatment (anaerobic-aerobic) technologies for safe discharge of treated slaughterhouse and meat processing wastewater."

Slaughterhouse industry generates considerable amount of wastewater rich in proteins, lipids, fibres, and carbohydrates. Numerous technologies such as electrocoagulation, membrane separation, advanced oxidation, physico-chemical processes, and biological treatment have been implemented for reducing the concentrations of these compounds. Nevertheless, this review aims to provide extensive information solely on the biological treatment (anaerobic and aerobic) of slaughterhouse wastewater. The advantages of anaerobic treatment are excellent organic matter removal, less sludge production, low energy requirement, execution of higher loading rates, and considerable production of biogas. Aerobic treatment on the other hand is a less sensitive process, possess lower start-up period, and efficient nutrient removal process. Numerous case studies are described to bestow maximum understanding of the wastewater characteristics, kind of treatment employed, and complications involved in managing and treating of slaughterhouse effluent. Additionally, role of microbial community involved in the treatment of slaughterhouse waste is also discussed. Sequential anaerobic and aerobic reactors are also reviewed in order to present their advantages over single bioreactors. Intermittent sequencing batch reactor is a promising technology than other high rate digesters in the removal of carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorous.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A semisynthetic cephalosporin antibiotic which can be administered intravenously or by suppository. The drug is highly resistant to a broad spectrum of beta-lactamases and is active against a wide range of both aerobic and anaerobic gram-positive and gram-negative organisms. It has few side effects and is reported to be safe and effective in aged patients and in patients with hematologic disorders.

A plant genus of the family PONTEDERIACEAE that is used as a biological filter for treating wastewater.

Complex pharmaceutical substances, preparations, or agents of organic origin, usually obtained by biological methods or assay. They are used especially in diagnosis and treatment of disease (as vaccines or pollen extracts). Biological products are differentiated from BIOLOGICAL FACTORS in that the latter are compounds with biological or physiological activity made by living organisms. (From Webster's 3d ed)

Treatment of diseases with biological materials or biological response modifiers, such as the use of GENES; CELLS; TISSUES; organs; SERUM; VACCINES; and humoral agents.

The oxygen consumption level above which aerobic energy production is supplemented by anaerobic mechanisms during exercise, resulting in a sustained increase in lactate concentration and metabolic acidosis. The anaerobic threshold is affected by factors that modify oxygen delivery to the tissues; it is low in patients with heart disease. Methods of measurement include direct measure of lactate concentration, direct measurement of bicarbonate concentration, and gas exchange measurements.
