Abstract: The biological sulphate removal technology requires carbon and energy sources to reduce sulphate to sulphide. Plant biomass, e.g. cut grass, is a sustainable source of energy when cellulose is utilised in the anaerobic degradation to produce Volatile Fatty Acids. This process involves cellulose utilizing micro-organisms, present in the guts of ruminants. The Sulphate Reducing Bacteria (SRB) can also assist in the degradation of complex polymers and can utilize H2, and VFA as energy sources. A close syntrophy exists between the VFA and H2 producing and utilising micro-organisms, which is beneficial for sulphate removal, using a single stage anaerobic hybrid reactor.
