Effluents from biological treatment processes contain a variety of soluble organic matter, including residual influent substrate, soluble microbial products, and non- or slowly biodegradable organic materials. Several experimental studies were carried out in lab-scale batch reactors to determine kinetic parameters and microbial product formation at the practical F/M ratios. The results show that biomass associated organic matters exist, which cannot be degraded even in long term in the system. The kinetic parameters observed were as follows:
