Experiments have been performed, using a sequencing batch reactor, to examine the effect of pH on biological phosphorus removal in the activated sludge process. The results, which indicate that glycogen metabolism occurs during anaerobic conditions, are useful in elucidating the biochemical mechanisms involved in phosphorus-removal, and have potential implications for systems such as Phostrip.
