The main raw water has following parameters, water comes from a soap manufacturing factory
- pH 7.1
- BOD 520 mg/L
- COD 4890 mg/L
- TSS 360 mg/L
- No Oil & Grease
if you need expected treated effluent data
- pH 6.5-8.5
- BOD <50 mg/L
- COD <30 mg/L
- TSS <250 mg/L
- Oil & Grease <10 mg/L
Is activated sludge process efficient for industrial waste water treatment of this kind of raw water? what are the reasons if it isn't a good way to treat such raw water. Any recommendations with reputable sources such as research papers etc?
my proposed process is initial sieve filtration --> airation --> addition of floc (bacteria and protozoa) --> settling tank --> gravity filtration
I'm really new to this and trying to understand it.
please letme know if I asked it in a incorrect way. thanks
