Pilot studies with synthetic and actual dairy wastewater showed that anaerobic-filter pretreatment at ambient temperature (20-24 degree C) showed capable of reducing total BOD//5 by up to 90%. Analysis of the reactor kinetics showed that the reactions were complete in about two days detention time.
