This document is a compilation of 68 papers presented at the First National Symposium/Workshop on Rotating Biological Contactor (RBC) Technology sponsored by the University of Pittsburgh in cooperation with the US Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (Champaign, IL) and the USEPA Office of Research and Development's Municipal Environmental Research Laboratory (Cincinnati, Ohio). The Symposium/Workshop was held February 4-6, 1980 at Champion, Pennsylvania. The papers presented in the three-day Symposium and the findings of the research needs Workshop comprise the major portion of these proceedings. The Symposium/Workshop proceedings will document present knowledge regarding RBC technology. The papers are divided into 11 major topic areas: perspective, overview, history, process variables and biofilm properties, municipal wastewater treatment, biokinetic studies, air drive and supplemental aeration, industrial wastewater treatment, concepts and models, upgrading primary and secondary waste treatment systems with RBC's, design and operation, nitrification and denitrification, and selections and economics.
