Dear Aitor

There are 4 application notes on fuzzy logic applications in waste water
treatment found in the book "Fuzzy Logic and NeuroFuzzy Applications
Explained" by Prentice Hall 1995. Also, there is a simulation of a fuzzy
logic controlled phosphate precipitation plant with the fuzzyTECH Demo
software release 4.22 you find on the Internet at Make
sure to download the (old) release 4.22 because the newer ones do not
contain the phosphate precipitation simulation any more.

Good luck
