The residual organics in effluents are classified using analytic and process techniques for component identification. Residual organics in biologically treated effluents are either refractory or are produced by biological treatment. There is a residual class of organics not removed by activated carbon. This was confirmed by considering the chemical composition of effluents, by extrapolating adsorption isotherm, and by an electrokinetic fractionation. It is hypthesized that this residual class of organics contain nitrogeneous groups that are the degradation products of bacterial cell walls.
