Abstract: The Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETP) minimizes the pollution from industrial effluents. This plant monitors the reduction of physical and biochemical parameters such as total suspended solids (TSS), biological oxygen demand (BOD), chemical oxygen demand (COD), dissolved oxygen (DO), heavy metals etc. The Sequential Batch Reactor (SBR), a variation of the ASP, combines all the treatment steps and processes into a single basin. An improved SBR process is Attached Growth Batch Reactor (AGBR) technology that provisions for microbial growth on the settled media/bed to treat the industrial wastewater using enzymes. This technology, when used to treat polluted river water, achieved about 90% of reduction of wastewater parameters. Hence the same is envisioned for the treatment of industrial effluent. In all the above methods the sludge settlement occurs. It contains biodegradable carbon content which could be used as feed for Biogas Digesters to produce Methane. The present study aims at examining the benefits of combining AGBR and Biogas Digester to implement the 3Rs (Reduce, Recycle, Reuse)
