The paper describes tests performed in order to evaluate the fate of aqueous organic hazardous waste compounds in the activated sludge process. Gas, liguid, and waste solids samples were taken from acclimated activated sludge systems to determine amounts that were volatilized, biodegraded, and associated with the wasted solids. Results discussed here include two compounds, methyl ethyl ketone and 1,1,1-trichloroethane.
Includes bibliographical references (page 7). Microfiche.
