Abstract: Sugar mill is one among the foremost industries that discharge the effluent in immense amount causes grim effects on soil and ground water which in turn creates serious environmental issues. This study investigates the reactor interpretation and performance of treating real sugar industry effluent. The system was protected with seed sludge from the obtained anaerobic treatment process unit managing sago effluent followed by it is started using synthetic sago wastewater, then it is fed with real sugar industry wastewater. The reactor is fed with the industrial effluent having the Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) of 4560 to 4880 mg/L with Hydraulic Retention Time (HRT) of 24 hours. The various parameters such as pH, % COD removal Efficiency, Volatile Fatty Acid (VFA), Alkalinity and Bio-gas production are measured.
