Nitrogen transformations and removal mechanisms in algal and duckweed waste stabilisation ponds



Nitrogen transformations and removal mechanisms in algal and duckweed waste stabilisation ponds



Nitrogen transformations and removal mechanisms in algal and duckweed waste stabilisation ponds : iii + 133 pp.



This thesis shows that effective treatment may be combined with substantial nitrogen recovery in duckweed-based waste stabilization ponds. In these ponds, nitrogen is absorbed by rapidly growing duckweed and in this way turned into valuable animal feed. A pilot study was conducted at Birzeit University in Palestine to investigate nitrogen transformation and removal mechanisms and to establish nitrogen mass balances in algae-based ponds (ABPs) and duckweed (Lemna gibba) based ponds (DBPs).
