Abstract

In Great Britain, a plastic medium for packing trickling filters has been developed and tested with industrial and domestic wastes. The medium, consisting of alternate plain and corrugated sheets of polyvinyl chloride foil, has been used successfully in the treatment of wastes from distillation of whisky, canning of fruits and vegetables, brewing, textile dyeing and finishing, yeast production, and synthetic-resin production, as well as of domestic wastewater. The medium is most suitable for BOD loads of more than 37 lb/day/1,000 cu ft (590 g/day/cu m). Its light weight permits economies in plant construction. Cost of the medium, exclusive of installation, is approximately $2/cu ft ($71/cu m).
