Abstract

The aim of this work is to see the role of activated carbon (wood sawdust) and A. niger in the removal of colour from the anaerobically digested molasses spent wash. Various operation parameters like pH, contact time, adsorbent dosage, concentration of phosphate and carbon source, were considered and their effect on decolourization of anaerobically digested MSW by activated carbon and A. niger in batch mode was investigated.
