A Comparative Study of RBC and Activated Sludge in Biotreatment of Wastewater from an Integrated Oil Refinery

By multiplying the volatile solids by the hydraulic detention time in bioreactor, one can get 23 gramOday in activated sludge versus 270 gramoday in RBC. Although the hydraulic detention time in RBC was about 3 times lower, the process intensivity was always substantially higher.
