Case study - BM respirometry study about nitrification inhibition and actual aeration capacity in an activated sludge process

by SURCIS, S.L.  (Nov. 19, 2014)

Study for municipal WWTP in Spain This study is ordered to SURCIS as a consequence of the low process performance, practical absence of nitrification treatment. By other side, the mixed-liquor presented some abnormal features such as weakness, dark colour and abundant white foaming. Data for study interest Aeration system: fine ...

Case study - Respirometry study of two different wastewater samples on COD fractioning & biodegradability for a specific activated sludge process and nitrification

by SURCIS, S.L.  (Nov. 19, 2014)

Preliminary This service was made according to customer order points and indications from Hydrolab Microbiológica (Surcis collaborator) The client wanted Surcis to carry out a study about COD fractioning and nitrification. For this study the client has provided to Surcis the following: Process type: Activated sludge - Extended aeration 2 ...

A kinetic study of nitrification inhibition in water distribution systems using low levels of chlorite

by IWA Publishing  (Sep. 8, 2014)

Water utilities use operational strategies such as increasing pH, chlorine-ammonia ratio, and/or chloramine residual, distribution main flushing, and periodic break-point chlorination to control nitrification of chloraminated water in distribution systems. Although these methods are proven to be useful in controlling nitrification, the results ...

Nitrification case study

by Cleveland Biotech Ltd  (May 29, 2014)

The Bay View effluent treatment plant is one of the largest wastewater treatment facilities in North West Ohio, USA. The facility is located near the mouth of the Maumee River and provides treatment for an area of about 100 square miles. About 84 square miles of this area is located within Toledo city. The population that it serves is ...

Simultaneous autotrophic denitrification and nitrification in a low-oxygen reaction environment

by IWA Publishing  (Aug. 13, 2014)

The occurrence of autotrophic denitrification and nitrification activities by ammonia-oxidising bacteria and nitrite-oxidising bacteria is studied in a bioreactor system operable at low-dissolved oxygen (DO) and at variable oxygen influx rates. At a loading of 3.6 mg NH4+–N/h into the bioreactor, simultaneous autotrophic ...

Influence of shear on nitrification rates in a membrane bioreactor

by IWA Publishing  (Apr. 24, 2014)

Grundfos BioBooster (GBB) installed and operated a membrane bioreactor (MBR) test plant in 2012. During the period it became evident that the nitrification rate was lower than expected and a study was carried out to investigate the possible reasons for the observed low-nitrification rate. Tests were conducted at a pilot plant and the effect of ...

Nitrogen balance and transformation in the nitrification process of coking wastewater and the influence on nitrification kinetics

by IWA Publishing  (Apr. 10, 2014)

This paper describes the total nitrogen balance, and the direction and degree of nitrogen transformation during the nitrification process of coking wastewater. According to the actual nitrification process, the conventional nitrification kinetic equation was amended. After 48 h of nitrification, the total nitrogen content remained almost the same ...

Tracking composition of microbial communities for simultaneous nitrification and denitrification in polyurethane foam

by IWA Publishing  (May 7, 2014)

The process of simultaneous nitrification and denitrification (SND) of immobilized microorganisms in polyurethane form is discussed. The effect of different positions within the polyurethane carrier on microbial community response for the SND process is investigated by a combination of denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis profiles of the 16S ...

N2O emission in short-cut simultaneous nitrification and denitrification process: dynamic emission characteristics and succession of ammonia-oxidizing bacteria

by IWA Publishing  (Jun. 25, 2014)

A sequencing batch airlift reactor was used to investigate the characteristics of nitrous oxide (N2O) emission and the succession of an ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB) community. The bioreactor could successfully switch from the complete simultaneous nitrification and denitrification (SND) process to the short-cut SND process by increasing the ...

The effect of soil properties on the toxicity of silver to the soil nitrification process

by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.  (Feb. 1, 2014)

Silver (Ag) is being increasingly used in a range of consumer products, predominately as an antimicrobial agent, leading to a higher likelihood of its release into the environment. This study investigated the toxicity of Ag to the soil nitrification process in a European and Australian soils in both leached and unleached conditions. Overall, ...
