Dear All,


We are designing pilot scale UASB reactor to produce biogas from our canteen food waste leachate. The COD in leachate varies from 20000 mg/l to 40000 mg/l. Typically UASB reactor can go upto OLR's of 10-20 kgCOD/m3/day.


1) Does anybody have any experience what upflow velocity should be considered for diameter selection for UASB reactor ?

2) How to calculate the SRT for canteen food waste leachate and what is the typical range of SRT for food waste leachate.

3) Does anybody have design of inlet distribution system?
