Title:
The role of residual quantities of suspended sludge on nitrogen removal efficiency in a deammonifying moving bed biofilm reactor 
Abstract:
Abstract In a moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) system, the vast majority of biomass is immobilized as biofilm besides small amounts of suspension. In this study, the influence of the individual biomass components of a deammonifying MBBR, the biofilm on carriers (BC), residual suspended biomass (SB) with a volatile suspended solids concentration of 0.09 ± 0.03 g/L, and its combination (BC + SB) on nitrogen removal efficiency was investigated. While the performance was highest for BC + SB (0.42 k...    »
