... load of about 5.3 kg COD/m3/d provided that alkalinity was added to adjust the pH to near 7. The specific substrate utilization rate, and observed biomass yield were about 0.37 kg COD removed/kg VSS/d, and 0.06 kg VSS/kg of COD degraded, respectively. The following conclusions can be drawn from th ...
