This paper deals with preliminary laboratory investigations conducted into the use of a new unit termed a disc bio-filter for sewage treatment. Some basic disadvantages of present day sewage treatment methods are analysed, and the reasoning which led to the creation of the disc bio-filter is set out. The manner in which this unit is expected to improve on existing treatment methods is expounded.
