Simultaneous removal of phosphorus and nitrogen in sequencing batch reactor



Simultaneous removal of phosphorus and nitrogen in sequencing batch reactor



Biodegradation 3(1): 105-111



In this research, investigations were made on material transfer mechanisms and optimum operation mode for sequencing batch reactor system removing phosphorus and nitrogen simultaneously. Phosphorus release characteristics were expressed in the Monod equation, in which the reaction rate was replaced with specific phosphorus release (SPR) rate. The rate of SPR was increased during the first 80 days, but increased sharply to reach 0.003 hr-1 afterwards. Phosphorus removal efficiencies were about 60% in the first 80 days, 75% after 80 days, and above 95% after 120 days. After 120 days, phosphorus concentration in effluent was below 0.5 mgl-1 when 9 mgl-1 was in the influent and the released phosphorus after 3-hour-anaerobic period was 60 mgl-1. In the proposed optimum operation strategy (2-hour anaerobic react, 3-hour aerobic react, 4-hour anoxic react, and 3-hour settle and draw), phosphorus reappeared if the oxidized nitrogen was completely denitrified. In order to prevent this undesirable phosphorus release, anoxic period should be reduced to the extent of which the minimal concentration of the oxidized nitrogen existed. Phosphorus removal efficiency was stable under shock load as 5 times high as normal phosphorus concentration.
