The objective of this project was to evaluate a patented process developed by the Max Planck Institute (MPI) of West Germany for the treatment of industrial wastes, as an energy-efficient method for the treatment of municipal wastewater. The major goal was to achieve effluents meeting the United States Federal Effluent Standards by this novel biological treatment process that uses a minimal amount of mechanical equipment and does not require a great amount of manpower for normal operation. An eleven-month study demonstrated that raw screened wastewater applied to the trench system at a rate not exceeding 95 m3/d (25,000 gpd) could be treated to secondary effluent quality. Spatial requirements were about the same as for a septic tank system.
