Summary of "Controlling cold temperature partial nitritation in moving bed biofilm reactor."

Mainstream partial nitritation was studied at 10 °C in a moving bed biofilm reactor treating synthetic wastewater containing both nitrogen (≈40 mg L) and organic carbon at COD/N ratio ranging from 1.3 to 2.2. Three different control strategies were investigated to achieve partial nitritation. Initially, biofilm age was controlled by incorporating a media replacement strategy. Next, separately from the media replacement, oxygen limited conditions were investigated and finally pH control was incorporated together with oxygen limitation. Successful partial nitritation was achieved only by combining oxygen limitation with pH control. The average NH-N concentration was equal to 16.0 ± 1.6 mg L and average NO-N concentration was equal to 15.7 ± 2.4 mg L during steady state partial nitritation. The average residual NO-N concentration was equal to 2.6 ± 2.2 mg L. The results obtained from this study prove for the first time that partial nitritation can be successfully controlled in a biofilm reactor treating wastewater with low nitrogen concentration, relatively high COD/N ratio and at low temperature. An algorithm for dynamic process control of partial nitritation has been also developed.

An absence of warmth or heat or a temperature notably below an accustomed norm.

A constellation of responses that occur when an organism is exposed to excessive cold. In humans, a fall in skin temperature triggers gasping, hypertension, and hyperventilation.

A climate characterized by COLD TEMPERATURE for a majority of the time during the year.

Cellular receptors which mediate the sense of temperature. Thermoreceptors in vertebrates are mostly located under the skin. In mammals there are separate types of thermoreceptors for cold and for warmth and NOCICEPTORS which detect cold or heat extreme enough to cause pain.
