Study on Short-Cut Nitrification Aerobic Granular Sludge Cultivation and Carbon-Nitrogen Removal
Acclimation of short-cut nitrification aerobic granular sludge with aerobic granular sludge and nitrification sludge as seed sludge in a sequencing batch reactor(SBR) by controlling the pH, influent ammonia concentration, temperature and other conditions. Experimental results showed that the short-cut nitrification aerobic granular sludge with high ammonia and COD removal rate (95%) was formed successfully, and SBR can run long-term stably. DO at 6.0~8.0mg/L when the nitrosation rate remained stable at 50% ~ 60%, and lower DO levels within the reactor (2.0~3.0mg/L) nitrosation rates of up to 90%. Mature short-cut nitrification aerobic granular sludge average diameter of 2~3mm in between, MLSS of up to 10.162g/L, SVI minimum up to 22.63ml/g, moisture content is only 81.93%, total nitrogen removal rate of 40%, and carbon-nitrogen removal capability.
