Toelichting (Engels) The feasibility of sludge reduction via the XE biodegradation process was explored both experimentally and through modeling, where the main focus was on determining the value of the bE parameter (first order degradation of XE) from a continuous process. Two activated sludge (AS) systems (30 L) were operated in parallel with synthetic wastewater during 16 months: a conventional activated sludge (CAS) system and a modified low-sludge production activated sludge (LSP-AS) process equipped with a side-stream digester unit (DU). First, the long term data of the CAS reactor (1 year) were used to calibrate the ASM model and to estimate the heterotrophic decay constant of the cultivated sludge (bH = 0.29 d-1, death-regeneration basis). Second, pre-simulations were performed to design the LSP-AS system and to estimate the DU volume required (40 L), to avoid XE accumulation in the process. Third, the LSP-AS process was built, put in operation and monitored for more than 9 months. This allowed assessment of the actual behavior of the quasi-complete solids retention system. Once calibrated, the modified AS model estimated the value of the bE parameter to be in the range of 0.003–0.006 d-1, satisfactorily describing the overall sludge yield reduction of up to 49% observed in the experiments.

To support researchers to publish their research Open Access, deals have been negotiated with various publishers. Depending on the deal, a discount is provided for the author on the Article Processing Charges that need to be paid by the author to publish an article Open Access. A discount of 100% means that (after approval) the author does not have to pay Article Processing Charges.

For the approval of an Open Access deal for an article, the corresponding author of this article must be affiliated with Wageningen University & Research.
