The article presents information on the treatment of waste water in general for reuse purpose. In the process of aerobic mineralisation of dissolved organics in wastewater, most of the energy is used on synthesis of new cells. Aerobic biological treatment of wastewater is the widely used method for the complete oxidation of dissolved organics using atmospheric air as the oxidant.
