With recent increased public awareness of pollution problems it has become imperative to develop improved methods of treating municipal and industrial wastewater. Presently most wastewater is treated using biological treatment, usually the activated sludge process. It is the purpose of this research to determine if the use of powdered activated carbon can improve the treatment efficiency of the activated sludge process.
