Description

An Innovative Role of Biofiltration in Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTPs) focuses on identifying the factors that affect biofiltration, such as the hydraulic retention time of the biofiltration system and the type and characteristics of the filter and attached biomass. In addition, sections explain biofiltration and its influence and provide guidelines on how to control certain factors to optimize better operation in pollutant control for wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). Final sections discuss the microbial ecology of biofiltration and its applications, including the removal of emerging pollutants.

Key Features

  • Covers the microbial ecology of biofiltration
  • Includes the modeling of biofiltration
  • Presents the design of biofilters, where to start and their monitoring
  • Discusses the mechanism of biofiltration
  • Describes the controlling and operational factors of biofiltration
