The trickling filter/solids contact (TF/SC) process was first successfully demonstrated in 1979 as an outgrowth of the trickling filter process. In 1984, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sponsored full-scale studies of the TF/SC process to document the performance of existing facilities and provide process design operation and information. Major study objectives included: development of a definition that distinguishes the TF/SC process from related processes; documentation of design features and performance of existing facilities; evaluation of the influence of trickling filter loading on TF/SC performance; assessment of flocculation and soluble biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) removal in the aerated solids contact tank; and determination of the effect of mixed liquor suspended solids concentrations and secondary clarifier overflow rate on TF/SC performance.
