Modified Monod and linear substrate utilization rate equations for activated sludge biodegradation processes.

Gregory. Orzechowski
Substrate removal is most commonly modelled with a Monod or a linear rate equation. In these expressions the removal rate is most often assumed to be first order with respect to volatile suspended solids, which are used as an approximation of the active biomass in the reactor. Wastewater treatment systems are typically operated at sludge ages at which the biomass is in the condition of advanced endogenous decay. This results in the accumulation of dead...
