Plant scale evaluation of activated sludge and Bio-Disc treatment of distillery wastewater has been conducted over a period of more than one year at Pekin, Illinois. The activated sludge process consistently provided in excess of 90 percent removal of BOD5, even at loadings greater than the treatment plant design levels. The Bio-Disc process had to be down-rated from the original design basis in order to approach a comparable removal efficiency. Of the two systems evaluated, the activated sludge process was the more desirable from standpoints of economics, treatment performance, and ability to handle shock loads.
