Toelichting (Engels) Aerobic sludge granules are suspended biofilms with the potential to reduce the cost and footprint of secondary wastewater treatment. Attempts to answer how and why they form leads to a consideration of the role of their extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) in determining their physical and microbiological properties. The exopolysaccharide components of this matrix, in particular, have received attention as putative structural, gel-forming agents. Two quite different exopolysaccharides have been proposed as the gel-forming constituents, with their gel properties clearly different from those of activated sludge EPS. This review aims to address the question of whether more than one gel-forming exopolysaccharide exist in granules.
