Modeling of slow sand filtration for disinfection of secondary clarifier effluent.


Due to increasing water scarcity, appropriate technologies are needed for disinfection of wastewater to enable safe reuse. Research on hygienisation of secondary effluent using slow sand filters is very limited but promising with removal of fecal indicator bacteria of >2log-units. A quantitative description of the processes leading to bacteria removal is… (More)
