Surface Characteristics of Biological Solids
The activated sludge process is a widely used biological treatment process whose performance depends on the microbial population present as well as the organic wastes to be treated. Recognition of the biological action of sludge bacteria led to the development of a theory of bioxidation based on the analogy of a pure bacterial culture feeding on a homogeneous soluble substrate.
