Description:

A systematic scanning election microscope analytical technique has been developed to examine granular activated carbon used a a medium for biomass attachment in liquid waste treatment. The procedure allows for the objective monitoring, comparing, and trouble shooting of combined processes by direct visual examination of trhe biomass's attachment characteristics and ratring key criteria that have been found to have the greatest effect on the process's perforrmance.
