Mass balances and modelling over wastewater treatment plants
Expanded Title:This project made a sinificant advances towards deceloping steady state mass balancs based integgrated wastewqter treatment plant WWTP models which link primary sedimentation, nitrification denitrification (ND) activated sludge (AS) and aerobic or anaerobic digestion(AD) of primary (PS) and waste activated sludges (WAS). The most significant of these developments is the finding that particulate organics that are unbiodegradable in the AS reactor are also unbiodegradable under AD conditions . AS and AD simulation models can therefore be linked with common compounds at the link to form plant wide WWTP models. Development of a masss balances based steady state model for the entire WWTP comprising primary settling, NDAS and aerobic or anaerobic digestion of PS and WAS was completed.
