Oxidation of high-strength ammonium wastewater can lead to exceptionally high nitrite concentrations; therefore, the effect of high nitrite concentration (> 400 mM) was studied using an ammonium-oxidizing enrichment culture in a batch reactor. Ammonium was fed to the reactor in portions of 40-150 mM until ammonium oxidation rates decreased and finally stopped. Activity was restored by replacing half of the medium, while biomass was retained by a membrane. The ammonium-oxidizing population… CONTINUE READING
