Physico-Chemical Effluent Treatment

Reduction of biodegradable organic carbon from reduced groundwater by filtration

In semi-industrial trials, biological conversion processes for the removal of iron, nitrification and the removal of manganese by rapid filtration have been tested in the treatment of groundwater of low oxygen content for the supply of drinking water. A reduction of some 30% in the biodegradable organic carbon content has been achieved. Wet filtration has been clearly superior to dry filtration.
