Naphthalene and phenanthrene were degraded in a variant of the activated sludge process, called an enricher reactor system. In this system a second biological reactor is used to grow cells especially prepared to degrade the target compound. The cells are then added to the main reactor as a form of bioaugmentation. The new system showed enhanced removals and it is concluded that it is a promising way to improve activated sludge process efficiency.
