Biomass as Alternative Energy Source
The potential for biomass utilization as a source of fuel, petrochemicals and petroleum-sparing substances is reviewed. The choices for cultivating biomass, utilizing it directly as an...

Hydraulic Regime and Activated Sludge Performance
The standard bio-kinetic theory used to describe the activated sludge process predicts that the soluble organic matter (SOM) concentration in the effluent of plug flow aeration tanks will...

Nitrification Rates in Activated Sludge
By using biokinetic and stoichiometric equations it was possible to theoretically develop insight into factors that affect nitrification rate in activated sludge systems. From this study...

Response of Onondaga Lake to Restoration Efforts
The continuing restoration program for polluted, hypereutrophic Onondaga Lake, is examined, including descriptions of ecosystem responses to reclamation measures and evaluations of the...

Anaerobic and Micro-Algal Process Kinetics for Swine Waste
Kinetic studies for anaerobic fermentation of swine waste with and without addition of algal biomass and growth of algal biomass by using raw and anaerobically digested swine waste are...

The Effects of Artificial Destratification on ALGAL Populations

Organic Carbon Decay in a Stream with Biofilm Kinetics

Energy Recovery From Waste and Biomass—Site Specific Economic Studies

Marine Kelp: Energy Resource in Coastal Zone

Energy Recovery from Wastes and Biomass

Low Temperature Anaerobic Digestion of Swine Manure
Anaerobic digestion of swine manure at low process temperatures was studied in two pilot-scale experiments where the effect of process temperature was evaluated in terms of biogas production,...

A Combined Aquatic-Terrestrial Wastewater-Biomass System

Sanitary Sewers for Developing Countries
To combat disease, we try to ensure water supply purity. Water is only one of many methods of disease transmission, however, and its purity does not alone eliminate the spread of disease....

Conceptual Model for Activated Sludge Processes
The interrelationships between four quantitatively definable characteristics of an activated sludge biomass and three selectable engineering control variables were examined computationally...

New Approach to Bacterial Kinetics in Wastewater
A mathematical model for bacterial growth is developed by consideration of the analogy between bacterial growth and a nonelementary chemical reaction. The resulting model is very general,...
