Nutrient Removal Mechanisms

Biological nutrient removal in wastewater involves manipulation of the process environment. Bacteria responsible for waste treatment either proliferate or decay as ambient conditions change. The degree of treatment depends on the number of specific genera of bacteria. Therefore, environmental engineers must account for certain influencing parameters during process design and operation. This section reviews the theories of phosphorus, ammonia, and nitrogen removal. Design parameters are reviewed with specific attention to actual operating experience.
