Subject field(s)
  • Biochemistry

Biological treatability of waste water. Whenever statistics regarding suitability for biological treatment are inadequate, laboratory or semi-industrial pilot studies must be carried out. This type of study is particularly advisable in the case of industrial effluents or town sewage containing industrial waste.


  • Biochimie

Traitabilité biologique des eaux résiduaires. Chaque fois que des données statistiques suffisantes sur l'aptitude au traitement biologique font défaut, il est nécessaire de procéder à des études de laboratoire ou sur pilote semi-industriel. Ces études sont particulièrement recommandées pour les eaux résiduaires industrielles ou les eaux urbaines dans lesquelles sont déversées des rejets industriels.
