Paper Title:
Comparison of A2/O and Membrane Bioreactor Processes for Municipal Wastewater Treatment: Nutrient Removal Performance and Sludge Characteristics
  Abstract

The performance of nitrogen and phosphorus removal was investigated in pilot-scale A2/O, A2/O-MBR and mA2/O-MBR processes for treating municipal wastewater. The results show that these processes had a similar COD and ammonia removal efficiency, but A2/O process had better denitrification efficiency than MBR processes. In order to explain the difference of nitrogen and phosphorus removal performance in the investigated processes, specific oxygen uptake rate (SOUR), specific denitrification rate (SDNR), anaerobic release rate and anoxic and aerobic uptake rate of the activated sludge taken from A2/O and mA2/O-MBR processes were compared. The results show that the activated sludge of mA2/O-MBR process had a higher nitrifying activity in aerobic tank than A2/O process, the denitrifying activity in anoxic tanks were roughly equal and A2/O process had a higher denitrifying phosphorus removal activity in anoxic tank than mA2/O-MBR process.
