Question details

Assume that the organic portion of the biomass in an activated sludge wastewater treatment system can be written as the chemical formula C60H8:02:N12P. You know that the volatile suspended solids (VSS) concentration of the mixed liquor (i.e., the biomass in suspension in the activated sludge aeration basin) is 2,000 mg/L. What is the concentration of the organic portion of the biomass expressed in terms of mg/L as COD? Repeat this problem using the chemical formula C,H1204N. Discuss briefly why the two results are different. 2.
