The presence of organic matter (OM) is considered to affect anammox process adversely, while practically wastewaters containing ammonia are not free from OM. In this study, the performance of anammox granules in presence of OM was evaluated under different COD to N ratios. Low OM concentration did not affect ammonia and nitrite removal significantly but improved the total nitrogen removal via denitrifiers. High OM could suppress anammox activity, resulting in a lower ammonia removal. PCR tests… CONTINUE READING
