<emphasis role="bold">Introduction</emphasis> Rotating biological contactor (RBC) design criteria presented in this chapter are limited to carbon oxidation and nitrification. As a secondary treatment process, RBC has been applied where average effluent water-quality standards are less than or equal to 30-mg/ L BOD 5 and TSS. When the RBC is used in conjunction with effluent filtration, the process is capable of meeting more stringent effluent water-quality limits of 10-mg/L BOD 5
