About this book

This book provides an overview of respirometry and its scientific and engineering basis, and describes the fundamentals of biological waste treatment, development of predictive models for system design and operation, and how respirometry fits in with these operations. It also presents case studies, which give you concrete examples of the application of respirometry. This book aims to help activated sludge process control designers, operators, and managers of biological wastewater treatment facilities learn how to improve methods for the analysis of biological wastewater systems, enhance design and treatability projects, optimize and troubleshoot plant operations, and accurately predict the impact of new loads or streams on biological wastewater facilities.


Preface. Fundamentals of Biokinetics for Activated Sludge Systems. Basic Principles of Bioreactor Modeling. Engineering Models for Activated Sludge Systems. Comparison with Other Approaches and Basic Applications. Procedures for Obtaining Biokinetic Constants. Factors Affecting the Values of the Biokinetic Constants. Case Studies and Applications. Appendices.
