This study focused on high-rate nitrogen removal by the anaerobic ammonium oxidation (Anammox) process with a sufficient inorganic carbon (IC) source. Experiments were carried out in an up-flow column Anammox reactor fed with synthetic inorganic wastewater for 110 days. The IC source was added into the influent tank in the form of bicarbonate. The results(More)
The purpose of this study is to investigate the nitrogen removal performance of the anaerobic ammonium oxidation (Anammox) process and the microbial community that enables the Anammox system to function well at ambient temperatures. A reactor with a novel spiral structure was used as the gas-solid separator. The reactor was fed with synthetic inorganic(More)
The present study aims to provide a realistic understanding of how the anammox bacterial community and nitrogen removal performance are affected by increasing salt concentrations at ambient temperature. A laboratory-scale investigation was conducted for 92 days, during which the reactor was fed with synthetic inorganic wastewater composed mainly of(More)
A biosorption column and a settling tank were operated for 6 months with combined municipal and industrial wastewaters (1 m3/hr) to study the effect of dissolved oxygen (DO) levels and Fe3+ dosage on removal efficiency of dissolved and suspended organics prior to biological treatment. High DO (>0.4 mg/L) were found to be detrimental for soluble chemical(More)
