Tertiary nitrification in a new dual-medium aerated filter.

In an effort to develop an aerated filter with high nitrification capabilities, we formulated a new filter with 2 layers: the upper layer is filled with a plastic medium, and the lower with anthracite. We tested the filter in a pilot-scale apparatus on secondary-treated sewage, and in a small-scale apparatus on secondary-treated sewage and on artificial… CONTINUE READING
