Microbial Activity in "Overland Flow" Industrial Waste Treatment

Microbial Activity in "Overland Flow" Industrial Waste Treatment

Date: August 1969
Creator: Eubanks, Elizabeth R.
Description: One of the major problems of modern industries concerns the disposal of waste materials without the concomitant pollution of the environment. Several food and wood products industries have solved this problem by using the "overland flow" method of waste treatment. The research described in this paper was undertaken to ascertain the fact that the waste purification occurring on the disposal field is the result of microbial activities in the soil, and to study the transformations taking place.
