Existing biofilm theory is examined with the aim of selecting a suitable level of complexity for incorporation into stochastic models. This is done primarily with the aim of later application to model predictive real time control. Although this project focuses on modelling for control at biofilter level, the major benefits of this grey-box modelling approach are expected on application at a treatment plant and a catchment level. The project will involve much PC work using data collected from earlier IMT laboratory work and from pilot/full scale plants outside IMT. The project is a sub-project of the EFS-CINTEM project co-ordinated from VKI.
