Short- and long-term effects of ammonium and nitrite on the Anammox process.
Autotrophic anaerobic ammonium oxidation (Anammox) is a biological process in which Planctomycete-type bacteria combine ammonium and nitrite to generate nitrogen gas. Both substrates can exertExpand

Short- and long-term effects of temperature on the Anammox process.
The application of the Anammox process has been usually focused on the treatment of wastewater with temperatures around 30 degrees C in order to operate under optimum conditions. In this work, theExpand

Two ways to achieve an anammox influent from real reject water treatment at lab-scale : Partial SBR nitrification and SHARON process
Abstract A comparative study to produce the correct influent for Anammox process from anaerobic sludge reject water (700–800 mg NH4+-N L−1) was considered here. The influent for the Anammox processExpand

Effect of ultrasound pretreatment in mesophilic and thermophilic anaerobic digestion with emphasis on naphthalene and pyrene removal.
In many anaerobic digestion processes for the treatment of the sludge produced in wastewater treatment plants, the hydrolysis of the organic matter has been identified as the rate limiting step. ThisExpand

Evaluation of hydroxyapatite crystallization in a batch reactor for the valorization of alkaline phosphate concentrates from wastewater treatment plants using calcium chloride
Abstract In this work, phosphorous recovery as hydroxyapatite (Ca5(PO4)3OH(s) = Hap) from alkaline phosphate concentrates (0.25–1 g P–PO43−/L) using calcium chloride (6 g/L) in a batch reactor wasExpand

Two-step partial nitritation/Anammox process in granulation reactors: Start-up operation and microbial characterization.
A two-stage Partial Nitritation (PN)/Anammox process was carried out at lab-scale conditions to treat reject water from a municipal WWTP. PN was achieved in a granular SBR obtaining an effluent withExpand
