A biofilm model for the simulation of denitrification with methanol in a 3 m high upflow biofilter is presented. This model considers mass transfer at the bulk/biofilm interface, mass transport in the liquid phase of the biofilter and mass transport and substrate utilization in the biofilm. The biofilter was run with different filtration rates between 11 and 29 m/h. The methanol dosage ranged between 2.6 and 3.8 g CH 3 OH/g NO 3 -N. The denitrification rate ranged between 1 and 4.8 kg/m 3 d and… CONTINUE READING
