The effects of microwave pre-treatment of meat industrial wastewater were investigated in this study. The focus of this investigation was to determine the optimum conditions in a continuous flow microwave treating system under which the microwave pre-treatment of meat industrial wastewater would facilitate the maximum biogas yield. Response surface analysis was applied to screen the effects of volumetric flow rate (FR), number of treating (NT) and power of the magnetron (PM).
