The objectives in the study were to determine the removal efficiencies of a two-stage aerobic biological treatment system while processing high strength, large volume, nutritionally unbalanced cannery wastes, and to determine the waste characteristics resulting from the processing of a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. The system was studied over one operating season and data collected on the removal efficiencies of each unit process in the system. The treatment system performed more efficiently than expected in the design assumptions. Removal efficiencies of greater than 95% were obtained for most of the processing season, even though because of plant expansion the organic and hydraulic load was higher than expected.
