- Allows for higher biomass concentrations than activated sludge - smaller footprint
- Removal of BOD5, Ammonia, Phosphate, and Nitrate/Nitrite all in one single basin
- Less energy use than conventional activated sludge
The authors created an excellent graphical abstract for evaluation of AGS appearance with different influents.
