Deoxygenation

Mathematical modelling of activated sludge systems has become a widely accepted tool in the past decade, and is used for research, plant design, optimisation, training, and model-based process control. The quality of simulation studies can vary strongly depending on the project objectives, resources spent and expertise available. A great variety of approaches and insufficient documentation make quality assessment and comparability of simulation results difficult or almost impossible. To overcome these obstacles a general framework for the application of activated sludge models is needed.

Several guidelines have been developed during the last years around the world. To merge their experience three European and one North American group decided to organize a workshop at the 4th IWA World Water Congress in Marrakech, Morocco. After the workshop IWA formed new Task Group on the use of Activated Sludge Models. The objective of the Task Group is to prepare a Scientific and Technical Report that describes a Good Modelling Practice with ASM type models.

Please feel free to look around the website and contact us if you are interested to keep in touch – either to contribute to our work if you are a practicing modeller, or to benefit from this group effort, as we all hope to.
