Abstract: Anaerobic Hybrid Reactor (AHR) is one of the most commonly used high rate reactors for treating the domestic and industrial wastewater which offers the advantages of Up flow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket Reactor (UASBR) and Up flow Anaerobic Filter Reactor (UAFR) in a single reactor. In the present study determination of kinetic constants of the AHR was aimed by conducting experimental studies on a laboratory scale Anaerobic Hybrid Reactor(AHR) using different shapes of Poly Propylene Inter Media in the AHR and the dairy industrial wastewater as substrate. The mathematical equations Grau second-order model and Stover Kincannon model were found appropriate models for the design of Anaerobic Hybrid Reactors (AHRs).
Keywords: Anaerobic Hybrid Reactor (AHR), Kinetic Constants, Inert Media, Dairy Wastewater, Organic Loading Rate (OLR), Substrate.
