Enhanced Biological Phosphorus Removal from Domestic Wastewater




The discharge of excessive amounts of phosphorus (P) from wastewater treatment plants may trigger eutrophication in receiving waters, which threatens human health and aquatic life. Enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR) promotes the removal of P from wastewater without the need for chemical precipitants. EBPR can be achieved using nitrification and denitrification types of activated sludge. This book highlights the overview of P in domestic wastewater, the use of discontinuous aerobic-anoxic reactor to remove P from domestic wastewater using nitrification and denitrification types of activated sludge, and the application of aerobic digestion and alternating aerobic-anoxic process for removing P from wastewater. This book will benefit civil, chemical, and environmental engineers, environmental practitioners, lecturers, and researchers.
