Abstract

Performance of sequencing batch reactors for simultaneous nitrogen and phosphorus removal is evaluated by means of model simulation, using the activated sludge model, ASM2d, involving anoxic phosphorus uptake, recently proposed by the IAWQ Task group. The evaluation includes all major process configurations with different aerobic, anoxic, anaerobic sequences, and fill conditions. Basic relationships between modelling and design based on overall process stoichiometry are established for the interpretation of nutrient profiles associated with different operation modes. A similar approach is also used for the assessment of the effect of major operating parameters on system performance.
