Aerobic granules technology (AGS) was difficult to cultivate at low temperature, and the treatment efficiency of domestic sewage was remarkably low because of low temperature, which greatly limits its development and application. AGS formation time significantly decreased for 43 days by adding 19.0 mg/L Mg(2+) and 21.0 mg/L Al(3+), moreover, AGS possessed better simultaneously chemical oxygen demand, NH(4) (+)-N, TP removal efficiencies at low temperature, which the respective removal… CONTINUE READING
