    Effect of Aluminum and Iron on Odors, Digestion Efficiency, and Dewatering Properties

    This study was designed to be a follow up of the WERF III (Adams, et al., 2007) odor study. It was found in the WERF III study that iron and aluminum appeared to play important roles in odor generation so some additional data was sought to determine the role these play in determining odor. In this portion of the study, the impact of iron and ...
