Organic and nitrogen removal from landfill leachate in aerobic granular sludge sequencing batch reactors



Organic and nitrogen removal from landfill leachate in aerobic granular sludge sequencing batch reactors



Waste Management 32(3): 448-455



Granule sequencing batch reactors (GSBR) were established for landfill leachate treatment, and the COD removal was analyzed kinetically using a modified model. showed that COD removal rate decreased as influent ammonium concentration increasing. Characteristics of nitrogen removal at different influent ammonium levels were also studied. When the ammonium concentration in the landfill leachate was 366 mg L, the dominant nitrogen removal process in the GSBR was simultaneous nitrification and denitrification (SND). Under the ammonium concentration of 788 mg L, nitrite accumulation occurred and the accumulated nitrite was reduced to nitrogen gas by the shortcut denitrification process. When the influent ammonium increased to a higher level of 115 mg L, accumulation of nitrite and nitrate lasted in the whole cycle, and the removal efficiencies of total nitrogen and ammonium decreased to only 35.% and 39.3%, respectively. also showed that DO was a useful process controlling parameter for the organics and nitrogen removal at low ammonium input.Aerobic granular sludge SBR was used to treat real landfill leachate. COD removal was analyzed kinetically using a modified model. Characteristics of nitrogen removal at different ammonium inputs were explored. DO variations were consistent with the GSBR performances at low ammonium inputs..
