Abstract

The treatment of waste water by biological oxidation is an old and established process. In recent years, the possible risks of airborne contamination from aerated waste-treatment systems have been recognized. To provide effective protection of operating personnel and members of the general public, methods which can quantitatively predict the emission rates of volatile organics are needed. Described in this paper are the experimental methods used to start up and operate bench-scale wastewater-treatment systems, including a description of the experimental apparatus and the daily operating procedures; the sampling and analysis procedures used to collect air, water, and sludge samples and determine the acrylonitrile concentration; significant results; and conclusions.
