We develop an expanded unified model that integrates production and consumption of internal storage products (X(STO)) into a unified model for extracellular polymeric substances (EPS), soluble microbial products (SMP), and active and inert biomass in activated sludge. We also conducted independent experiments to find needed parameter values and to test the ability of the expanded unified model to describe all the microbial products, along with original substrate and oxygen uptake. The model… CONTINUE READING
