The influence and dynamics of bacterial extracellular polysaccharide (EPS) polymer production and its impact on bioflocculation in activated sludge (AS) bench-scale reactors were investigated. The impact of food to microorganism ratio (F/M), reactor configuration and easily biodegradable carbohydrates in influent streams on biological processes that support or weaken good floc formation and the link with EPS quantity was studied. Bioreactors were run as either sequencing batch or continuous… CONTINUE READING
