Biological Treatment of High TDS Wastewater
Abstract:Many industrial wastewaters, particularly in the organic chemicals or petrochemical industries, contain high concentrations of inorganic salts, chlorides and sulfates, as well as high organic concentrations. Total dissolved solids levels as high as 12 percent have been observed in some wastewaters. This creates problems in the biological treatment of these wastewaters. This paper discusses these effects on the activated sludge process and presents several case histories.
