Summary of "Sources of anammox granular sludge and their sustainability in treating low-strength wastewater."

Anaerobic ammonium oxidation (anammox) has been widely applied in the treatment of high-strength nitrogen wastewaters. However, few engineering practices were reported to treat low-strength nitrogen wastewaters. In this study, three types of anammox granular sludge (GS) were separately collected from the expanded granular sludge bed (EGSB) reactors treating nitrogen wastewaters at high (H-), moderate (M-) and low (L-) nitrogen loading rates (NLRs), and employed for the treatment of low-strength nitrogen wastewater in sequencing batch advanced nitrogen removal (ANR) systems. The ANR system with M-GS (namely M-ANR system) was most useful. At the initial biomass concentration of 2.43 g-VSS·L, cycle length of 8 h and influent total nitrogen (TN) concentration of less than 15 mg·L, the performance data were as follows: effluent TN of less than 1 mg·L, TN removal efficiency of more than 92.8%, the nitrogen removal rate (NRR) of 0.039 kg-N·m·d. The efficient performance lasted as long as 46 cycles, indicating the sustainability of the M-ANR system. The advanced microscopic analysis and metagenomic analysis were applied to reveal the successful but non-permanent treatment by the M-ANR system. The long-time lag between biomass decay and sludge activity decay provided a window period for the good performance of M-ANR system. However, the weak support of oligotrophic habitat for anaerobic ammonium oxidizing bacteria community was doomed to the degradation of anammox GS, resulting in gradual loss of their activities. A periodic addition of fresh M-GS or a periodic rejuvenation cultivation in the eutrophic habitat is necessary to achieve a permanent performance.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The internal resistance of a material to moving some parts of it parallel to a fixed plane, in contrast to stretching (TENSILE STRENGTH) or compression (COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH). Ionic crystals are brittle because, when subjected to shear, ions of the same charge are brought next to each other, which causes repulsion.

The amount of force generated by MUSCLE CONTRACTION. Muscle strength can be measured during isometric, isotonic, or isokinetic contraction, either manually or using a device such as a MUSCLE STRENGTH DYNAMOMETER.

White blood cells. These include granular leukocytes (BASOPHILS; EOSINOPHILS; and NEUTROPHILS) as well as non-granular leukocytes (LYMPHOCYTES and MONOCYTES).

Physicians who specialize in treating disorders of the RESPIRATORY SYSTEM, especially diagnosing and treating diseases and defects of the lungs and bronchial tree.

Light sources used to activate polymerization light-cured orthodontic adhesives (DENTAL CEMENTS). Degree of cure and bond strength depends on exposure time, wavelength, and intensity of the curing light.
