ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The open access article in the April 2018 issue of
Water Environment Research (WER) discusses the settings necessary for intensified nitrification in certain activated sludge systems.
“In their paper on low-SRT, low-temperature activated sludge, Figdore et al. were able to achieve stable nitrification using bioaugmentation with a nitrifying granular sludge,”
WER Editor-in-Chief Tim Ellis said. “Once bioaugmentation was interrupted, the mainstream nitrification stopped. During bioaugmentation effluent ammonia levels were consistently below 1 mg/L.”
Selected WER articles such as this one are available free to the public on a monthly basis through an open access program. In addition, authors can pay a fee to make their accepted articles open access.
