At the Convent Knabber-Gebäck GmbH & Co potato chip plant in Frankenthal, near to Ludwigshafen, the industrial waste water is treated both anaerobically and aerobically. The resulting effluent is fed into the river Rhine. In order to meet rising water quality demands, the treatment plant includes nitrification, denitrification and phosphorus removal. The industrial waste water plant consists of the following: (i) an equalising tank to equalise flow and concentrations and for acidification; (ii) a fixed-film methane reactor with settle tank for the anaerobic treatment; (iii) a trickling filter with plastic support media for waste water cooling; (iv) an activated sludge system.
