Aerobic granulation in a sequencing batch reactor

Abstract In a sequencing batch reactor (SBR) granules of aerobic heterotrophic microorganisms were cultured. The effect of different operational conditions on the formation of these aerobic granules were studied. The time allowed for settling was the main parameter to select for growth of bacteria in well settling granules.

Microbial Composition and Structure of Aerobic Granular

Aerobic activated sludge granules are dense, spherical biofilms which can strongly improve purification efficiency and sludge settling in wastewater treatment processes. In this study, the structure and development of different granule types were analyzed. Biofilm samples originated from lab-scale sequencing batch reactors which were operated with malthouse, brewery, and artificial wastewater

Selective enrichment and granulation of ammonia oxidizers

Sequencing batch airlift reactor (SBAR) was developed to selectively enrich and granulate ammonia oxidizers from wastewater nitrification. Partial nitrification and reduced settling time were the selection pressures for the selective enrichment and granulation of ammonia oxidizers in the SBAR operation. Sludge flocs became granulated and the sludge volume index (SVI) decreased sharply from 130

Mature aerobic granular sludge (AGS) was inoculated for the start-up of a pilot-scale sequencing batch reactor for the treatment of high concentration solvent recovery raffinate (SRR). The proportion of simulated wastewater (SW) (w/w) in the influent gradually decreased to zero during the operation, while volume of SRR gradually increased from zero to 10.84 L. AGS was successfully domesticated

Calcium accumulation characterization in the aerobic

Limited work has been done on the accumulation characterization of Ca2+ in aerobic granules that are cultivated in a continuous-flow bioreactor. In this work, the contribution of Ca2+ to the biogranulation in a continuous flow airlift fluidized bed (CAFB) reactor has been studied. The spatial distribution and form of calcium in the granules were investigated by scanning electron microscopy

Sequencing Batch Reactors (SBR) for Wastewater Treatment

Sequencing batch reactors (SBRs), also known as sequential batch reactors, are activated sludge systems applied in wastewater treatment. SBR systems are upgrades of conventional activated sludge systems that minimize footprint by integrating separate functions in a single treatment system. Standard SBR setups usually include the reactor basin, water sludge draw-off mechanism, effluent decanter
