Although nitrogen removal from wastewater is essential to prevent eutrophication, the biological processes employed to this end are characterized by several disadvantages, including high energy consumption and the production of large quantities of sludge. Thus, in this study, the organic matter and nitrogen removal efficiencies of the new sulfate reduction, denitrification/anammox and partial nitrification (SRDAPN) process were examined using an anaerobic-anoxic-oxic biofilter reactor.

Impact of increasing sulfide addition on the nitrogen removal and microbial community of CANON process in membrane bioreactor
Abstract Simultaneous removal of nitrogen and sulfur pollutants was an urgent issue since they coexisted in many kinds of wastewater and led to the black-odor water. In this study, sulfide was
Recycling sludge-derived hydrochar to facilitate advanced denitrification of secondary effluent: Role of extracellular electron transfer.
Sludge-derived hydrochar (SDHC) was recycled to enhance the denitrification of secondary effluent and the significant increase of nosZ gene encoding nitrous oxide reductase was conducive to mitigating the emission of N2O greenhouse gas.
Emerging onsite electron donors for advanced nitrogen removal from anammox effluent of leachate treatment: A review and future applications.
The mechanisms and processes using these three kinds of electron donors for residue nitrate reduction in anammox effluent of leachate are systematically summarized and discussed and it can be concluded that, biodegradable organic matter is an effective electron donors, sulfide is a promising electron donor, methane is a potential electron donor.


A novel sludge minimized biological nitrogen removal process for saline sewage treatment.
It was confirmed that the autotrophic denitrification was a major contributor to the total nitrogen removal in the SANI system, and both the accumulation of elementary sulfur in the biomass and the loss of hydrogen sulfide were trivial.
A novel sulfate reduction, autotrophic denitrification, nitrification integrated (SANI) process for saline wastewater treatment.
A lab-scale evaluation of a novel and integrated biological nitrogen removal process: the sulfate reduction, autotrophic denitrification and nitrification integrated (SANI) process that was recently proposed for saline sewage treatment found that accumulation of elementary sulfur and loss of hydrogen sulfide in the system were negligible.
Nitrogen flow and microbial community in the anoxic reactor of “Sulfate Reduction, Denitrification/Anammox and Partial Nitrification” process
Abstract We propose a sulfate reduction, denitrification/anammox and partial nitrification process to treat organic wastewater. Nitrogen removal in the anoxic reactor in this process was examined
Performance of partial denitrification (PD)-ANAMMOX process in simultaneously treating nitrate and low C/N domestic wastewater at low temperature.
Results showed that desirable performance was achieved with average NO3(-)-N, NH4(+)-N and COD removal efficiencies, however, deteriorated sludge settleability in PD reactor was observed during operation, which bulked with serious sludge wash-out, leading to excess NO3 (-)-N remaining in PD effluent.
Pilot scale evaluation of SANI process for sludge minimization and greenhouse gas reduction in saline sewage treatment.
The SANI pilot plant was successfully operated for 225 days and achieved average COD, TSS, TN removal of 87, 87, and 57%, respectively, and DNA extraction, PCA amplification results revealed that no methanogens were detected in the SRUSB.
Large-scale demonstration of the sulfate reduction autotrophic denitrification nitrification integrated (SANI(®)) process in saline sewage treatment.
This study demonstrates the SANI process can be potentially implemented for the treatment of saline sewage by reducing the amount of space needed by 30-40% compared with conventional activated sludge plants in Hong Kong.
Integration of sulphate reduction, autotrophic denitrification and nitrification to achieve low-cost excess sludge minimisation for Hong Kong sewage.
The feasibility of autotrophic denitrification utilising dissolved sulphide produced during anaerobic treatment of sulphate rich wastewater was studied and will be helpful in developing the integrated treatment system to achieve low-cost excess sludge minimisation.
Anaerobic oxidation of ammonium is a biologically mediated process
It was concluded that anaerobic ammonium oxidation was a microbiological process as the conversion of ammonium to dinitrogen gas did not even require a trace of O2.
Oxygen transfer dynamics and nitrification in a novel rotational sponge reactor
Abstract The nitrification process demands higher oxygen supply, which is fulfilled through external aeration in wastewater treatment. To perform nitrification without external aeration, this study
Anaerobic ammonium oxidation discovered in a denitrifying fluidized bed reactor
Anaerobic ammonium oxidation is a new process in which ammonium is oxidized with nitrate serving as the electron acceptor under anaerobic conditions, producing dinitrogen gas, and has been given the name ‘Anammox’ (anaerobic ammonia oxidation), and has be patented.
