ISBN-13: 9781843391654

Activated Sludge and cardio Biofilm Reactors is the 5th quantity within the organic Wastewater therapy sequence. the 1st a part of the publication is dedicated to the activated sludge procedure, overlaying the removing of natural topic, nitrogen and phosphorus. a close research of the organic reactor (aeration tank) and the ultimate sedimentation tanks is supplied. the second one a part of the booklet covers cardio biofilm reactors, particularly trickling filters, rotating organic contactors and submerged aerated biofilters. For the entire structures, the booklet offers in a transparent and concise means the most techniques, operating ideas, anticipated elimination efficiencies, layout standards, layout examples, development points and operational instructions. The organic Wastewater remedy sequence is predicated at the ebook organic Wastewater therapy in hot weather areas and on a hugely acclaimed set of top promoting textbooks. This overseas model is comprised by way of six textbooks giving a cutting-edge presentation of the technological know-how and expertise of organic wastewater remedy. different books within the organic Wastewater therapy sequence: quantity 1: Wastewater features, therapy and disposal quantity 2: simple ideas of wastewater therapy quantity three: Waste stabilisation ponds quantity four: Anaerobic reactors quantity 6: Sludge therapy and disposal

Example text

For the estimation of the particulate BOD, some considerations should be made. The solids that generate oxygen demand are only the biodegradable solids, since the inorganic and the inert solids are not an organic substrate that can be assimilated by the bacteria and generate oxygen consumption. 2, and knowing the process parameters, one can determine the parameter fb , that is, estimate which fraction of the VSS present in the plant effluent is biodegradable and will, therefore, represent the BOD of the suspended solids.

Only after this transformation to soluble organic solids will they be removed by similar mechanisms to those that acted on the soluble BOD. Thus, the influent particulate BOD will also generate bacterial growth and oxygen demand, but with a time lag compared to soluble BOD. In dynamic models this time lag should be taken into account, but it has no influence in steady-state models. This is the reason why So is considered as the total influent BOD. Another aspect to be remembered is that, if the treatment system is provided with primary sedimentation tanks, such as the conventional activated sludge system, part of the influent BOD is removed by sedimentation, corresponding to the settled fraction of the volatile suspended solids.

8 (see above). 3) Particulate BOD = 17 mg/L Total BOD = 8 + 17 = 25 mg/L If, for example, a better effluent quality, with a total effluent BOD5 of 20 mg/L were desired, there would be two possibilities. The first would be to reduce the effluent SS concentration (effluent polishing), to decrease the particulate BOD5 . The second would be to allow a maximum value for the soluble BOD5 of 3 mg/L (= 20 – 17 mg/L). In this case, the reactor should be redesigned. (c) Efficiency of the system in the BOD removal The efficiency of the system in the BOD removal is given by: E(%) = BOD5 influent − BOD5 effluent ·100 DBO5 influent The biological removal efficiency (that considers only the soluble BOD in the effluent) is: E = 100·(300 − 8)/300 = 97% The overall removal efficiency (considering total BOD in the effluent) is: E = 100·(300 − 25) = 92% In the calculation of the reactor volume and of the BOD removal, S is considered as the soluble effluent BOD, and So is the total influent BOD.
