VIDELA, S.; ISAACS, C. y DIEZ, M. Cristina. Evaluation of sequential aerated treatment of wastewater from hardboard mill. Braz. arch. biol. technol. [online]. 1998, vol.41, n.3, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1516-8913. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-89131998000300002.
Wastewater from a hardboard mill characterized by a high organic content (15-30 g/L COD) was studied in a bench scale sequential aerated system in order to define a start up strategy. Inlet COD concentration varied from 0.5 to 25 g/L and the hydraulic retention time was maintained at 5 days. The sequential system proposed could reduce BOD, COD, TSS and phenol over 90% except when the inlet COD concentration was lower than 25 g/L.
