Abstract
The aim of this study was to evaluate the settling velocity distribution of microalgal biomass with and without flocculant (Tanfloc SG). Microalgal biomass was obtained from two experimental wastewater treatment high rate algal ponds (HRAPs) operated with 4 and 8 days of hydraulic retention time. Two sets of dynamic sedimentation tests were carried out using a water elutriation apparatus. In the first set, most of the biomass of the 8 days-HRAP (63%) had settling velocities between 16.5 and 4 m/...
