The ultimate disposal of excess sludge generated from activated sludge processes has been one of the most challenging problems for wastewater treatment utilities. Previous work has shown that excess sludge can be minimized successfully by using sludge ozonation to dissolve it into substrates to be oxidized in the aeration tank. However, this approach is a costly option. Therefore, as an alternative solution, we propose to use chlorination to replace ozonation in excess sludge minimization in… CONTINUE READING
