Induction of denitrification was investigated for a lab-scale phosphate removing biofilm reactor where oxygen was replaced with nitrate as the electron acceptor. Acetate was used as the carbon source. The original biofilm (acclimatised with oxygen) was taken from a well-established large-scale reactor. During the first run, a decrease in the denitrifying bio-P activity was observed after 1 month following a change in the anaerobic phase length. This was initially interpreted as a shift in the… CONTINUE READING
