Research output: Thesisinternal PhD, WU

Abstract

The main objective of this research is to assess the applicability and effectiveness of integrating anaerobic digestion and denitrification processes in a single sludge system. The integrated concept is of particular interest for the treatment of highstrength domestic wastewater and is accomplished by means of a sequential anaerobic-aerobic system. The anaerobic pre-treatment can consist of a single anaerobic stage or two anaerobic stages, conditioned mainly by the wastewater characteristics, the prevailing ambient temperatures and the scale of application
