Introduction
In this study, combined ABR and AF was used to treat SWW at a pilot scale. Among different parameters, OLR and HRT are the most important parameters in anaerobic processes that must be optimally controlled. The aim of this study was to investigate the optimum OLR and HRT of two high-rate reactors (ABR and AF) in anaerobic treatment of high-strength SWW.
