The most widely used method of wastewater treatment is bilogical treatment. The use of kinetic models to describe the behavior of a biological wastewater treatment process has become widely accepted practice. the most often used kinetic models include those developed by Eckenfeler, McKinney, Lawrence and McCarty, and Gaudy. However, there has not been enough information available to establish reliable values for these kinetic constants for industrial wastewaters. This project has determined the biokinetic constants and fate for 24 toxic organic pollutants when present in a highly biodegradable wastewater. This study has produced a methodology for analysis of the test results from biological activated sludge systems for determining the biological variability inherent in these types of systems. This study also investiaged the possibility of predicting the fate and effluent concentrations of the various priority pollutants. It was found that good predictions for the priority pollutants can be made. Appendix A was submitted as a supplement to the full report in order to provide the raw data for the numerous experiments conducted.
