The treatment cap acity of biological wastewater treatment processes is directly related to the quantity of biomass in the bioreactors. More biomass provides more tre atment capacity. Consequently\, capacity can be increased by adding biorea ctor volume at the same biomass concentration or by increasing the biomass concentration in the existing bioreactor volume.

Many utilities are seeking to increase their treatment capacity eith er because of increasing flows and loads or in response to the decrease in capacity that follows conversion to a BNR process. The treatment capacity of biological wastewater treatment processes is directly related to the q uantity of biomass in the bioreactors. More biomass provides more treatment capacity. Consequently\, capacity can be increa sed by adding bioreactor volume at the same biomass concentration or by in creasing the biomass concentration in the existing bioreactor volume. Beca use constructing new bioreactor volume is expensive\, increasing the bioma ss concentration is the more attractive option but it is limited by the ca pacity of the clarifiers to handle the increased MLSS concentration. To so lve this problem\, several approaches to “\;process intensification&# 8221\; have been developed. This presentation introduces several “\;i ntensification”\; alternatives\, explains their biological and engine ering basis\, and their respective pros and cons.
