Intermittent cyclic process for enhanced biological nutrient removal treating combined chemical laboratory wastewater.

Abstract

The aim of this work was to assess the efficacy for simultaneous enhanced removal of nitrogen and phosphorus including organics treating combined wastewater generated from a chemical laboratory using a bench-scale Intermittent Cyclic Process Bio-reactor (ICPBR). The performance efficacy indicated that the ICPBR system with solid retention time of 15 days achieved optimum efficiency with an overall removal of ammonia nitrogen (NH4-N), phosphorus (PO4-P), and chemical oxygen demand (COD) in the range, 83-92%, 74-93%, and 90-96%, respectively.
