Creator McMorrow, Martin JK Young, Reginald HF Burbank, Nathan C Jr Lau, L Stephen Klemmer, Howard W
Subject Anaerobic bacteria. Canneries -- Waste disposal. Factory and trade waste -- Biodegradation. Pineapple industry -- Waste disposal.
Description To determine the response of pineapple mill waste to anaerobic digestion, a simulated mill waste with a COD value equal to actual mill waste was made from commercial pineapple juice for this study. Ammonium hydroxide was used as a pH control and a nitrogen supplement. The study utilized batch-anaerobic digesters in initial stages to find optimum conditions for long-term studies which were conducted in 9-liter bottles with periodic removal of digested waste and addition of fresh waste.
