Management of the aeration length in a sequencing batch reactor (SBR) can improve N-removal by minimising the amount of organic substrate that is oxidised aerobically. This study investigates the long-term effect of aeration control on N-removal via simultaneous nitrification and denitrification (SND) by a mixed culture in a 2L acetate-fed SBR, using PHB as the electron donor for denitrification. The reactor was operated continuously with automated termination of the aerobic phase after… CONTINUE READING
