The paper presents typical design data for nitrification and denitrification in MBBRs, plus results from guarantee tests where a single train is operated at design load, as well as results from normal operation of the plants.
Out of six plants with nitrogen removal in Norway, four plants use the Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) process.
The results from Norwegian and North American pilot and small full scale technology assessment studies.
Full-scale testing demonstrated that the combined denitrification MBBR process can easily remove 90 % of total N at reasonable operating costs.
The new CFIC® process was tested in parallel with the well-documented MBBR process.
Proof-of-concept has been demonstrated for a process that will utilize nutrients from sludge liquor, natural light, and CO2 from biogas to grow microalgae at wastewater treatment plants.
The feasibility of growing microalgae in natural light using wastewater high in nutrients (N & P) for the production of more bioenergy was examined.
Three lab-scale sequencing batch reactors (SBRs) were investigated to remove nitrogen from wastewater containing different particulate organic contents based on suspended solids (SS).
This new process has been tested for municipal wastewater.
The objective of this study was to compare some basic characteristics of sludge from fine mesh sieves (sieve sludge) with sludge from primary clarifiers.
