Appropriate biomass retention in reactor systems is a crucial factor for the accurate operation of the Anammox process due to the slow growth rate of this bacterial population. In the present study two different approaches were studied and compared to improve Anammox biomass retention minimizing wash-out events: 1) formation of granular biomass using influents with high inorganic salts concentrations by production of saline precipitates acting as promoters for biomass aggregation (reactor SBR1… CONTINUE READING
