Abstract

This research investigated the feasibility of applying deammonification, which is already highly successful and proven in sidestream configurations, to the mainstream treatment process. The successful application of full-plant deammonification could save wastewater utilities operations costs for aeration and external carbon costs in the life cycle. Through demonstration and conceptual application at collaborating utilities, this research developed an evaluation framework for implementing full-plant deammonification.
