Abstract

BACKGROUND: This study concerned the stoichiometric evaluation of simultaneous nitrification and denitrification in a membrane bioreactor. The evaluation was made to derive relevant mass balance equations for all parameters affecting nitrogen removal and to set the basis for a rational design procedure.
