The article focuses on the application of aerobic biological systems in retrofitting and upgrading both municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) across the globe. It stresses the viability of biological treatment as the most cost-effective method to oxidize organic pollutants in municipal wastewater. It relates that a biomass carrier technology can be successful in biological treatment of complex industrial wastewater by developing a suitable process scheme.
