An assessment of a lab-scale Upflow Anaerobic Filter (UAF) reactor used to treat slaughterhouse wastewater was carried out with varying operating conditions for Hydraulic Retention Time (HRT) and temperature. The best organic matter removal efficiency, measured as Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), was 86.1% at HRT of 24h at 35ºC. Under steady state conditions, the first-order, Stover-Kincannon and Grau-second-order kinetic models were used to represent the kinetics of organic matter removal in the UAF. The experimental data showed that the Stover-Kincannon and Grau kinetic models were the most suitable for predicting organic matter degradation. The kinetic analysis was used to establish two exponential relationships for determining the kinetic constants for both the Stover-Kincannon and Grau models as a function of temperature within the mesophilic interval studied. The results from this research study enable the determination of organic matter velocities, times and efficiencies of degradation which can be used in the design of an UAF for slaughterhouse wastewater.
