Abstract: The biological sulphate removal technology requires carbon and energy sources to reduce sulphate to sulphide. Plant biomass, e.g. grass, is a sustainable source of energy when cellulose is utilised during anaerobic degradation, producing volatile fatty acid (VFA) and hydrogen (H2). This process involves cellulose utilising microorganisms, present in the guts of ruminants
