I recently found out about this relatively new process for nitrogen removal - Deammonification and I got really interested. There are lots of papers about the process over the internet, but I couldn't find any information about the design parameters and recommendations, calculations for reactor volume, growth coefficients, etc.
Is there somebody who could help me on this matter?
Thank you!

RE: Deammonification

I have a couple of papers on it. They don't give reactor sizes because that is site and load specific but gives parameters such as SRT, MMLSS, F:M , C: N etc and assume that you know enough to work out the detail for your self.

RE: Deammonification

I already find those, but thank you anyway! I was wandering if there are some new papers with more detailed recommendations and calculations.

RE: Deammonification

Wastewater treatment is very site specific as i said earlier. Despite what some people think you cannot just churn out a set of magic numbers that will give you a one size fits all approach that you can then apply to build your own. That is not what research papers are intended for.

These papers explore the theory as applied to a particular problem and detail the results obtained. What you need to do is really understand the theory and principles behind the process then apply it to the site specific problems that you have to deal with. Only after you have developed that level of understanding should you even be considering designing your own process.

Even then it would be likely that you might want to do some mathematical modelling, lab testing , water sampling , pilot plant operation, etc before you committed to a full scale project.

I couldn't agree more! Thank you

RE: Deammonification

This is a proprietary process and you probably will need to work directly with the process supplier.
