Laboratory, pilot plant, and full-scale studies evaluated design parameters for liquid aeration systems treating livestock waste. Of the various approaches tested, the mass balance approach is the preferred approach since it yielded results comparable to other approaches and involved fewer assumptions. Equations were developed to predict the COD and suspended solids concentrations in the effluent from the aeration systems. A design example is included for both odor control and stabilization of the waste including minimal aeration as well as nitrification. In laboratory and full-scale livestock waste treatment systems uncontrolled nitrogen losses occurred. Preliminary investigations identified the engineering opportunities for the control of nitrogen in aeration units by either conservation or removal.
