Effects of Temperature and Mean Cell Residence Time on Enhanced Biological Phosphorus Removal
The effects of temperature and mean cell residence time (MCRT) on biological phosphorus and nitrogen removal were investigated by operating pilot-scale continuous-flow activated sludge...

The Effect of Operational Parameters on the Acid-phase Anaerobic Fermentation in the Biological Phosphorus Removal Process
A series of laboratory-scale, continuous flow experiments has been employed to study the effects of selected HRTs and SRTs on the acid-phase fermentation of primary sludge. The VFA production...

Slurry Bioremediation of Petrochemical Waste Sludges
Slurry bioremediation testing was conducted on waste sludges from petrochemical production. The study concludes that the apparent mechanism for remediation of the waste involves an initial...

Degradation of 1-Naphthylamine by Activated Sludge Using Bioaugmentation
This paper presents the results of ongoing research using a novel bioaugmentation scheme for activated sludge (AS) treatment of trace levels of a hazardous compound (1-Naphthylamine, 1NA)....

The Effects of Hazardous Organic Pollutants on the Performance of Activated Sludge Systems
The effects of phthalate esters (diethyl phthalate and dimethyl phthalate) and phenols (2,4-dinitrophenol, 2,4-dimethylphenol and 4-nitrophenol) on the performance of a laboratory-scale...

A Case Study in Sludge Handling
When the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority (WVSA) converted its operation to a secondary treatment plant in 1988, something important was missing. That something was a method to handle...

Microbiological Stabilization Through Aerobic Digestion and Storage
A study was conducted to evaluate the pathogen indicator bacterial reductions in the sludges of six wastewater treatment plants. These plants were extended aeration and oxidation ditch...

Chemical Sludge Treatment—A Way of the Future
Recently, chemical treatment of municipal sludges has become an alternative to incineration, composting, and digestion. The commercial processes have evolved into three categories of chemical...

Nutrified Sludge
A new biological treatment process, Nutrification, enables a wastewater treatment plant to remove phosphorus from influent water at an operating and maintenance cost 35% less than that...

Mercury Behavior in a Wastewater Sludge Incineration Process
The Western Lake Superior Sanitary District (WLSSD) in Duluth, Minnesota utilizes solid waste as fuel to incinerate wastewater treatment sludge, conserving energy resources while reducing...

Freezing Out Sludge
Sludge dewatering is one of the most difficult problems in water and wastewater treatment. This has been especially true for treatment plants in cold regions. Drying beds, the most common...

Testing an Expert System for the Activated Sludge Process

Composting, Past, Present and Future
Over the past ten years, the composting process has taken on a different look as a method of processing municipal sludge. Today it is one of the most popular and prevalent methods of sludge...

Modifications for Extending the Treatment Capacity
An approach for minimizing influences of increasing raw wastewater flow rates is proposed, based on modifying existing primary sedimentation units, by transforming them to flocculation...

Combined Nitrogen and Phosphorus Removal in a Cyclic Activated Sludge System Without Anoxic Mixing Sequences
A simplified methodology for combined phosphorus and nitrogen removal through reactor configuration, cyclic sequencing and the control of aeration intensity in variable volume activated...

Building a Geographic Information System (GIS) for Siting New York City Sludge Management Facilities
Siting studies for waste facilities usually focus on a particular geographic region, or a defined study area, and are restricted to a specific technology. However, the siting of land-based...

Renovating the Riverside Water Plant—A Case Study
In 1986, the City of Waco, Texas began construction of the first of four projects designed to renovate the Riverside Water Treatment Plant. The water treatment plant was originally constructed...
