<emphasis role="bold">AEROBIC DIGESTION</emphasis>Stabilization during aerobic digestion occurs from the destruction of degradable organic components and the reduction of pathogens by aerobic, biological mechanisms. Aerobic digestion is a suspended-growth biological treatment process based on biological theories similar to those of the extended aeration modification of the activated sludge process. The objectives of aerobic digestion, which can be compared to those of anaerobic digestion, include producing a stable biosolids via oxidizing organisms and other biodegradable organics, reducing mass and volume, reducing pathogens, and conditioning solids for further processing.
