Activated sludge systems have been a cornerstone of wastewater treatment for over 100 years. This biological process uses suspended growth microorganisms to break down and consume organics and remove nutrients from the wastewater. The heart of the process occurs in aeration basins, where the microorganisms need sufficient oxygen to stay alive.
