Title: Sequencing Batch Reactor for Wastewater Treatment: Recent Advances
Authors: Dutta A.
Sarkar, Sudipta
Published in: Current Pollution Reports
Abstract: Sequencing batch reactors (SBRs), due to its operational flexibility and excellent process control possibilities, are being extensively used for the treatment of wastewater which nowadays is fast becoming contaminated with newer and more complex pollutants. It is also possible to include different expanding array of configurations and various operational modifications to meet the effluent limits which are also continuously getting upgraded. This article provides basic description of SBR process along with its functional and physical variants that lead to improved the removal of nutrients and emerging contaminants. The significance of selectors and various recent advancements in the application of SBR has been discussed along with the possibilities held by SBR process in the treatment of wastewater of different origins and composition to produce effluent of reusable quality. ¬© 2015, Springer International Publishing AG.
