Salinity can adversely affect the performance of most biological processes involved in wastewater treatment. The effect of salt on the main conversion processes in an aerobic granular sludge (AGS) process accomplishing simultaneous organic matter, nitrogen, and phosphate removal was evaluated in this work. Hereto, an AGS sequencing batch reactor was subjected to different salt concentrations (0.2 to 20 g Cl− l−1). Granular structure was stable throughout the whole experimental period, although… CONTINUE READING
