An additional module for the prediction of enhanced biological phosphorus removal is presented on the basis of a calibrated version of ASM3. The module uses modified processes from ASM2d but neglects the fermentation of readily degradable substrate. Biomass decay is modeled in the form of endogenous respiration as in ASM3. Moreover, an additional glycogen(More)
Honeybees, like other insects, accumulate electric charge in flight, and when their body parts are moved or rubbed together. We report that bees emit constant and modulated electric fields when flying, landing, walking and during the waggle dance. The electric fields emitted by dancing bees consist of low- and high-frequency components. Both components(More)
The steady-state model from Siegrist and Gujer (1994) which can be used for the design and optimisation of nitrogen-removing activated sludge plants is applied to the stoichiometrics and kinetics of a validated Activated Sludge Model No. 3. It considers the wastewater composition, the effect of the electron acceptor on the average sludge production, the(More)
An ASM3-based steady-state model which can be used for estimating the average nitrogen-removal, sludge-production and phosphorus-removal rates of different biological phosphorus-removing systems (AAO, UCT, intermittent processes) is developed. It considers the wastewater composition, the oxygen and nitrate input in the anaerobic compartment and the(More)
Pilot tests were performed with a process combination of electrodialysis and ozonation for the removal of micropollutants and the concentration of nutrients in urine. In continuous and batch experiments, maximum concentration factors up to 3.5 and 4.1 were obtained, respectively. The desalination capacity did not decrease significantly during continuous(More)
