Abstract: This paper starts by presenting a fully automatic image analysis procedure for characterisation of flocs and filaments in activated sludge images. Thereafter the attention is directed towards the results of four lab-scale experiments, in which image information is related to sludge settleability in terms of sludge volume index. This relation is statistically confirmed by applying a principal component analysis to the data. In addition, the redundancy in the data sets is studied with regard to floc shape descriptors and the monitoring potential of image analysis is demonstrated by means of a multiple linear regression exercise.
