Pilot and laboratory studies were conducted in which acidic wastes were fed to an established anaerobic filter. The renovation of organically polluted acidic wastewaters was demonstrated and the applicability of the process detailed. Pilot studies would be required for the design of field installations and specific wastes. The anaerobic process and the methane bacteria are apparently more pH tolerant than generally recognized.
