Activated Sludge Treatment

Activated sludge is one of the most advanced and powerful technologies available for the treatment of domestic and industrial waste water. A correctly designed activated sludge plant can achieve:

  1. Full carbon oxidation   (>95% COD removal)
  2. Full nitrification   (ammonia to nitrite and nitrate)
  3. Full de-nitrification   (nitrate to N2)
  4. Enhanced biological phosphate removal
  5. Sludge stabilisation
