The treatment and removal of macro-nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus) from wastewater consumes significant energy and resources. Recently, a number of water resource recovery facilities (previously known as wastewater treatment plants) have begun to implement a relatively new innovation known as sidestream deammonification which uses the anammox bacteria as a cost-effective, efficient, and reliable option to treat high-strength ammonia wastewater treatment streams, in particular to treat recycle streams from dewatering of anaerobic digested sludge. While sidestream deammonification is now accepted as a proven process, the techniques by which to sustain deammonification in the colder and more dilute conventional wastewater is less clear.
The application of this process and technology to the mainstream process is both novel and innovative, and may offer a paradigm shift in nitrogen removal. The first North American research studies on this subject started in 2011 with significant funding from DC Water and Hampton Roads Sanitation District, VA, and with additional funding from WERF and the U.S. EPA. This web seminar will discuss the most current information with regard to fundamental research on mainstream deammonification, pilot and full-scale testing, viable process configurations based on what we know today, and successful process control techniques.
This webcast brings together the lead principal investigators (Maureen O’Shaughnessy, Dr. Sudhir Murthy, and Dr. Charles Bott) for the ongoing project INFR6R11 Full-Plant Deammonification for Energy Positive Nitrogen Removal and the lead principal investigator for WERF’s Nutrient Removal (NUTR1R06) research challenge (Dr. JB Neethling). They will discuss key findings and results from ongoing research, and will provide information on a new technology focus area (a joint WERF/WEF initiative known as LIFT-TEP) on short-cut nitrogen removal, and a related new consensus document that is being developed by WERF and WEF.
