Access from EThOS:
Monitoring and control of activated sludge mostly use non microbial specific parameters (e.g SS, COD, BOD etc). This thesis suggests they are no longer precise enough to give adequate reliability of the removal of N and P to meet the new standards. Basic theory points to the importance of mass transfer, diffusion and biochemical reaction rates in determining microbial morphology and therefore settlement.
