Research Progress of the Biological Aerated Filter in Wastewater Treatment
Abstract: Biological aerated filters (BAF) is a new wastewater treatment process developed at the end of the 1980s, and after 20 years of research and development, BAF system has been attached extensive importance to Europe, the US, Japan and other developed countries. At present, there are hundreds of engineering examples in the world. Through re-searching domestic and international literatures on BAF, this work endeavored to give an overview of the hot research topics and advances of BAF. Furthermore, the problems and difficulties presented were indicated. Finally, the key points needed to be deliberatively studied were discovered.
