4. Organic Matter Removal

Removal of organic matter is the most common requirement in wastewater treatment. This course contains fundamentals of organic matter fractionation and fate of its components in the biological reactor, it explains activated sludge system constraints, deals with steady-state and dynamic-simulation models, provides a detailed design example with focus on calculations, mass balances, reactor sizing, and essential considerations as concentrations in the reactor, carbonaceous oxygen demand, excess sludge production, food-to-microorganism ratio and load factor, capacity of the system, system design and control, role of hydraulic retention time, and the selection of sludge age. By the end of the course you will be able to engage with the scientific and bioprocess engineering principles and experimentation of organic matter removal with deeper insight, advanced knowledge and greater confidence.
