The problem involved in this thesis is threefold. First, the testing of a new process, which consists of a new modification of a biological process of wastewater treatment. Second, determining the following relationships by use of this process: (a) the empirical relationship between the frequency of biomass exposure to air and wastewater, and nutrient loading and reduction; (b) the effect of pulse frequency on biomass activity rate; (c) the determination whether bio-films grown at discrete frequencies inherently develop different biomass activity rates. Third, the analytical development of a kinetic theory of bio-film behavior based on the experimental results.
