Abstract:Kambhu and Andrews (1969) conducted the first research effort focusing on ‘autothermal thermophilic aerobic digestion’ (ATAD) technology in the late 1960's. Using a computer simulation, these researchers theoretically demonstrated that autothermal operation was possible with systems supplied both with high-efficiency aerators and influent TSS levels ranging between 4 and 6% solids.
