AIMS Comparison of the microbial composition and process performance between laboratory scale processes treating domestic and vegetable oil wastewaters. METHODS AND RESULTS Two laboratory scale modified Ludzack-Ettinger processes were operated under similar operating conditions. One process was fed domestic wastewater and the other an industrial wastewater, vegetable oil effluent. Nitrogen removal capacities of the processes were similar. The industrial process exhibited a lower COD removal… CONTINUE READING
