Abstract : A shore test program was conducted to determine the effectiveness of a proprietary 10-20 man treatment system designed for shipboard use. The system investigated made use of activated carbon for the purpose of filtration/adsorption and bio-oxidation of sanitary wastes. Influent and effluent waste properties were determined. Physical modifications were accomplished to convert the mode of operation from aerobic-anaerobic filtration/digestion to aerobic filtration/digestion. (Author)
