ABSTRACT
Anaerobic ponds are used rather often in hot climates. But the design of those ponds is still based on empiric rules. As for other types of extensive systems we should try to progress to the development of mathematical models describing in details the behaviour of such bioreactors. In the case of anaerobic ponds the two main processes of treatment (settling and biological activities) should be quantified separately. Moreover one should know more precisely where the biological activity mainly occurs: in the liquid phase or in the sediments accumulated on the bottom of the ponds.
