Contents Notes
The magnitude and effects of biological activity in expanded carbon beds used for direct clarification/adsorption treatment of wastewater were investigated. Major aspects of the project involved comparisons of the relative effectiveness of aerobic and anaerobic conditions in the expanded-bed systems, and a comparison of the relative treatment effectiveness of expanded carbon beds of high and low sorptive activity under aerobic operating conditions. The use of short polishing columns to remove traces or organics escaping from on-line adsorbers was also evaluated.
