Abstract

Abstract A study of several full-scale activated sludge plants has confirmed that whilst stable foam formation is associated with a dominance of the sludge flora by Nocardia or Microthrix parvicella, the degree of dominance is not related to the foaming potential as measured by a novel ‘foam index’. The data also show the significance that the suspended solids concentration has on foaming.
