Combined activated sludge-fixed film media treatment
systems are an interesting innovation in treatment
technology. By adding media into the aeration basin,
increased biomass concentrations may be maintained with
little or no increase in solids loading to the clarifier.
The ideal combined system can treat higher organic and
ammonia loadings than a conventional system, and is more
resistant to temperature changes and shock loadings.
Overloaded plants can be outfitted with media as an
alternative to plant expansion, and initial designs of
combined systems can result in smaller aeration basins and
clarifiers in places of land scarcity.
