Pretreatment of Turkey Fat-Containing Wastewater in Coarse Sand and Gravel/Coarse Sand Bioreactors

Due to slow decomposition, fat, oil, and grease in wastewater can be difficult to treat. With traditional methods becoming increasingly costly, this study aimed to find a better method. Sand and sand/gravel filters were used to facilitate the conversion of organic matter. The study showed that organic matter, specifically fat, was retained in the bioreactors.
