Bioflocculation: Implications for Activated Sludge Properties and Wastewater Treatment
(Virginia Tech, 1998-07-23)
Studies were conducted to determine the role of bioflocculation in the activated sludge unit processes. Laboratory and full-scale studies revealed that bioflocculation is important in determining settling, dewatering, ...
Biopolymer and Cation Release in Aerobic and Anaerobic Digestion and the Consequent Impact on Sludge Dewatering and Conditioning Properties
(Virginia Tech, 1998-08-27)
Sludge dewatering and chemical conditioning requirements were examined from the perspective of biopolymer and cation release from activated sludge flocs. Both aerobic and anaerobic digestion processes were considered ...
Effect of Solids Retention Time on Activated Sludge Properties and Effluent Quality
(Virginia Tech, 1998-08-26)
The effect of solids retention time (SRT) or sludge age on activated sludge properties and effluent quality was investigated using laboratory scale reactors. It was found that an increase in SRT resulted in an increase in ...
