6. The aeration tank for a completely mixed aeration process is being sized for a design wastewater flow of 7500 m²/day. The influent BOD is 130 mg/l with a soluble BOD of 90 mg/1. The design effluent BOD is 20 mg/l with a soluble BOD of 7.0 mg/l. Recommended design parameters are a sludge age of 10 days and volatile MLSS of 1400 mg/l. The kinetic constants from a bench-scale treatability study are Y=0.60 mg VSS/mg soluble BOD and Ka = 0.06 day!. Calculate the volume of the aeration tank, aeration period, food/microorganism ratio, sludge production, and efficiency of BOD removal.
