About this book

As biological wastewater treatment plants become ever more complex, their successful control becomes increasingly critical. Furthermore, the introduction of biological phosphorous uptake as an element in the biological processes of activated sludge treatment plants has created the need for deterministic modelling of these processes. Thus the success of an activated sludge plant depends on both modelling and control. Modelling and control are normally dealt with in three separate fields - modelling of settlers, modelling of biological processes and control of the whole system. The idea behind the specialized IAWQ Seminar held at Kollekolle, near Copenhagen, was to bring together these three fields. It also introduced the new "IAWQ Activated Sludge Model No.2: Biological Phosphorous Removal". From these proceedings it can be seen that the seminar fulfilled the objectives set. The papers published here give an up-to-date account of these fields and of how they can be integrated, and indicate in which direction research is moving. In the same way as the two previous (1986 and 1992) Kollekolle proceedings, this volume should prove invaluable as a solid reference of the current state of the art.


Part 1 Modelling of activated sludge processes: wastewater and biomass characterization for the Activated Sludge Model No.2 - biological phosophorous removal, M. Henze et al; structured modelling of denitrification intermediates, D. Wild et al; mathematical model for soluble carbonaceous substrate biosorption, L. Novak et al. Part 2 Parameter identification process control: statistical identification of Monod-kinetic parameters from on-line measurements, J. Carstensen et al; observability of reduced order models - application to a model for control of alpha process, E. Ayesa et al. Part 3 Bulking/settler modelling: low F/M bulking and scumming - towards a better understanding by modelling, J. Kappeler and R. Brodmann. Part 4 Process design: evaluation and design of full-scale wastewater treatment plants using biological process models, G.T. Daigger and D. Nolasco. Appendix - recommended notation for use in the description of biological wastewater treatment processes.
