Abstract Fruit and vegetable cannery wastewater was treated during two canning seasons by two pilot plants of the rotating biological contractor (RBC) and extended aeration types. The objective was to determine the effectiveness of these biological treatments processes on cannery wastewater and to compare the two units under the same operating conditions. Nitrogen and phosphorus were added to the influent wastewater so the BOD:N:P ratio was kept above 100:5:1. Effluent quality from both units was about the same over the operating temperature range of 10-20C, although the RBC appeared to recover more rapidly from organic shock loading. Neither unit produced an effluent that could be discharged to surface waters without further treatment. (Modified author abstract)
