Abstract

This project will strengthen our understanding of side-stream enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) and develop best practices for facilities implementing EBPR processes. Research results will include (1) design guidelines for EBPR processes that rely on biomass fermentation, (2) operating tools for EBPR processes that implement fermentation, and (3) modeling best practices for EBPR facilities.
