Abstract:

Crompton Co./Cie. in Elmira, Ontario, Canada is evaluating treatment methods of further improving its industrial wastewater effluent quality. A pilot scale activated sludge system was started to determine its effectiveness in treating the thermophilic biological effluent from the existing industrial wastewater treatment system. Preliminary results demonstrated that an additional 95% biological oxygen demand (BOD) and 65% dissolved organic carbon (DOC) removal was achieved. In addition, significant biodegradation of the refractory organic compounds was also observed.
