The performance response of planted and the unplanted wetlands to simulated wastewater with different ratios of carbon to nitrogen (C/N) was studied during a 9-month period in greenhouse conditions. With different C/N ratios for influent water (C/N ratios 2.5:1, 5:1 and 10:1), average removal efficiencies for the unplanted and the planted wetlands were as follows: COD (41-52% and 59-68%), TN (24-48% and 25-62%), TP (35-64% and 59-71%) and TOC (22-37% and 16-33%). At C/N 5:1, both systems… CONTINUE READING
