Abstract


In this study, a heterotrophic denitrification was designed for domestic wastewater treatment with unexpected water flows at different loading rates. Benefited from excellent removal ability COD, shorten operating time and lower maintenance cost. During the time of operation (six months), injection of nitrate was made in the influent RALBI 1 while the RALBI 2 was fed with sewage without addition of nitrate. The COD concentration in the influent of the two reactors was the same. This two reactors (RALBI1 and RALBI2) were fed with real wastewater for 172 days at 6 h HRT, the average COD removal were 71.55% and 54.82% for RALBI1 and RALBI2 respectively. The results showed that RALBI1 has good removal performance for COD compared with RALBI2. This could be due the injected nitrate in RALBI1 whose effect has further stimulated the activity of denitrifying bacteria.
