Abstract: Recently, it has been suggested that oxygen transport limitations within activated sludge flocs may induce the onset of bulking phenomena. Further more, several groups have recently employed the concept of an effectiveness factor, as developed form chemical engineering science, to correct of effectiveness limitations within microbial particles or slimes.
