  • Evaluation of the single sludge deammonification process for the treatment of plant recycle streams containing a high ammonium concentration

     ABSTRACT An innovative biological process for the treatment of ammonium-rich plant recycle streams from the dewatering of anaerobically digested sludges (“centrate” or “rejection water”) is being evaluated in North America in an unprecedented collaborative technology evaluation program between the New York City Department of Environmental Protection, the District of Columbia Water and ...

  • Long-term effects of the ozonation of the sludge recycling stream on excess sludge reduction and biomass activity at full-scale

    This paper presents a full-scale experience of sludge minimization by means of short contact time ozonation in a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) mainly fed on textile wastewater. The WWTP performance over a 3-year operational data series was analysed and compared with a two-year operation with sludge ozonation. Lab-scale respirometric tests were also performed to characterize biomass activity ...
