Substances polymériques extracellulaires dans les procédés de traitement des eaux usées

Abstract : The objective of this work is firstly, i) to study the microbial behaviour of the biomass especially the production of the EPS in the presence of pharmaceutical compounds (an anticancer product and five antibiotics); and secondly, ii) to study EPS in the context of the sludge settling in wastewater treatment plants. The study in the presence of the anticancer product was done in membrane bioreactors. The presence of the anticancer product provoked the production of the EPS as the protection mechanism which is at the origin of the membrane fouling.The effect of five antibiotics was evaluated in batch reactors. The family of macrolides showed the most important effect on the microbial activity with a significant increase of the EPS production which was associated with a protection mechanism.Sludge settling in the presence of fungi was carried out in a pilot reactor. The spectacularly improvement of the sludge settleability was related with a better cohesion inside of the flocs attributed to an increase of the EPS production.Finally, the diagnosis of different wastewater treatment processes was established in three paper mill wastewater treatment plants thanks to the double approach used here, the physico-chemical analysis of the sludge and the statistical analysis by principal components analysis of the different parameters recorded in each plant. We tried to describe the parameter related to the settling behaviour by linear or polynomial regressions of second degree in function of a reduced number of the measured parameters
