  • Aerobic microbial transformations of pipe and silt trap sediments from combined sewers

    ABSTRACTOrganic matter in sediments from pipes and silt traps in combined sewers was divided into fractions with different settling velocities. Biodegradability of organic matter for these fractions was characterised based on results from a conceptual model of aerobic transformations of resuspended sediments calibrated on oxygen utilisation rates. Pipe sediments as well as silt trap sediments ...
