The microbial elimination of nitrogen by combined nitrification and denitrification is a well-known technology in wastewater treatment processes. Nitrification in wastewater treatment plants is a sensitive microbiological process, which can be disturbed by toxic substances. Two laboratory methods for nitrification inhibition (ISO standard 9509 and a modification of the respiration inhibition test ISO 8192) were investigated with selected substances and compared with results from sewage model… CONTINUE READING
