Fast start-up of Anammox process with appropriate ferrous iron concentration.

In this study, three upflow column reactors were compared for anaerobic ammonium oxidation (Anammox) process start-up time with different ferrous iron concentration in feeding. Continuous experiments indicated that the start-up time of Anammox process could be shortened from 70 to 58d in R2 (0.06mM Fe(2+)) and 50d in R3 (0.09mM Fe(2+)). The Anammox activity… CONTINUE READING
