Bench-scale assessment of the effectiveness of an anaerobic selector in controlling filamentous bulking.


A laboratory scale sequencing batch reactor (SBR) was used to assess the ability of an anaerobic selector to control filamentous growth in an activated sludge plant experiencing bulking problems. The SBR was operated under a sequence of 60 min anaerobic followed by 120 min of aerobic period at 20 degrees C, with a total solids retention time (SRT) of 4 d… (More)
