Discussion of possibilities of bacterial metabolism of ABS substances in sewage; study is described in which 8 activated sludges were developed on 4 simple aromatic sulphonates and 4 analog carboxy aromatic compounds; ability of each of these activated sludges to metabolize other 7 substrates was measured with Warburg Respirometer; it is concluded that possibility to concentrate biological attack on ABS is remote.
