Abstract
The introduction of sulfite waste liquors into streams often leads to the development of unsightly masses of biological slime dominated by Sphaerotilus. One approach for controlling the development of Sphaerotilus in streams receiving pulp mill wastes has been to employ biological methods for treating wastes before release into a receiving stream. The study evaluates the slime growth potential of pulp mill wastes treated by various methods of biodegradation. Wastes were tested both before and after secondary treatment in order to determine the type of biodegradable material present in the influent, determine the extent of fermentation during treatment, and the amount of biodegraded fermentable compounds discharged in the effluent. These studies were carried out in an effort to define total carbon, readily fermentable carbon, and to design a reasonably accurate and sensitive method for predicting adequate water quality presently measured by BOD.
