English term or phrase: waste activated sludge
"a means of removing or wasting excess biological solids (waste activated sludge [WAS] from the system"
Looks a verb here, but "waste" seems to be a noun modifier elsewhere.
Used in contrast with RAS or return activated sludge
activated sludge = lodo/fango activado

Explanation:
This text may help:

El proceso de lodos activados es un método de tratamiento de las aguas servidas mediante aireación y agitación del líquido residual afluente mezclado con el lodo activado (licor mezclado), y la separación posterior del lodo del efluente tratado mediante sedimentación. La mayoría del lodo separado es entonces retomado para re-uso (lodos recirculados o RAS) y el lodo sobrante es descargado como lodo activado en exceso (WAS).

I did also see "lodos WAS" on one page.

Hope it helps.

The contextual material was a great help. I had to reword several passages, but I think that will do it.
The passage you quoted was about the very same subject.
Thanks!

Hola:

Me parece que "waste" está simplemente actuando como un sustantivo.
