Thermophilic aerobic granular biomass for enhanced settleability

Aerobic biological wastewater treatment at thermophilic (ca. 55 1C) temperatures notoriously produces biomass that flocculates poorly or not at all. Contrary to this, thermophilic aerobic biomass that settled well in sequencing batch reactors was cultured with sludge volume index (SVI) values as low...
