The present investigation deals with the anaerobic stabilization of distillery spent wash using cow dung as the seed material with varying organic loads. The optimum organic load required for maximum BOD reduction was found to be 0.7 kg BOD/m3/day. The biokinetic coefficients were determined for the data using modified Monodís equation. The anaerobic digestion of distillery effluent followed a first order kinetics since these are reactions that proceed at a rate directly proportional to the concentration of one reactant that is organic substrate.
