Nitrification was assessed in two full-scale wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) over time using molecular methods. Both WWTPs employed a complete-mix suspended growth, aerobic activated sludge process (with biomass recycle) for combined carbon and nitrogen treatment. However, one facility treated primarily municipal wastewater while the other only… CONTINUE READING
