Contents Notes
A two volume compilation, review and critique of the literature on biological trickling filter studies and related pollution abatement processes have been made. In the report, the literature review and critical analysis, is divided into: Introduction, definitions, history and background theory of the trickling filter process; Plant design, materials of construction, operation, maintenance and performance; Trickling filter research and development approaches, ecology, and patents, and Applications of trickling filter to specific industrial wastes. Based on the review, several general conclusions were drawn. There is no well-defined theory of design and operation. Much published work was redundant, and European efforts were not readily accepted in the United States, and vice versa. The literature reflects cycles of interest in trickling filters. The process is not applicable to all pollution problems, but its shock survival capabilities and rapid flow-through time are definite advantages which cannot be overlooked in any design of a waste treatment facility. In Vol. 2 a bibliography of 5,665 references relating to biological trickling filters studies is presented. Author references are listed in alphabetical sequence based upon the surname of the author. Anonymous articles are listed after the alphabetical author sequence, according to the alphabetical sequence of the journal, and chronologically within the journal.
