The effluent treatment plants are developed based on laboratory scale experiments and then scaled up to pilot scale. This is very rigorous process and lot of time and investment is required. The effluent quality variation affects the performance of the plant. For varying load, the parameters need to be adjusted. Factors like microbial attachment process, the kinetics of microbial growth and details of the microbial community influence the activated sludge process. Simulation of the process can save considerable amount of money and time. The modeling of the process helps in predicting the data values. The current review summarizes research and studies on simulation and modeling of biological treatment facilities.
