In the last few years, newly advanced anaerobic reactor systems, such as UASB, anaerobic filter (AF), anaerobic fluidised bed (FB), anaerobic sequencing batch reactor (AnSBR) and other modifications of anaerobic reactors have also been used for the treatment of low strength wastewater [Bodik et al.
The increased utilization of anaerobic wastewater treatment systems has been associated with the development of high-rate reactors such as the anaerobic filter (AF), the downflow stationary fixed-film (DSFF) reactor, the upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactor, the fluidized-bed (FB) reactor, and the expanded-bed (EB) reactor, which are widely used in municipal and industrial wastewater treatment (Shivayogimath & Ramanujam, 1999; Tay & Zhang, 2000).
