Trickling filters and biofilm modelling
Journal article, 2004

Tricking filters are biofilm reactors commonly used for biological removal of nitrogen and organic matter. A review of published and unpublished material on the function, microbiology, design and operation of trickling filters is given. This is followed by more general dynamic biofilm reactor modelling, i.e. models for rotating biological contactors, different types of biofilters, moving beds as well as trickling filters.
