The potential of ammonia removal through ion exchange with clinoptilolite was investigated under constant and variable loads. Clinoptilolite, by itself and in combination with a filter With biological activity was studied. Special attention was given to peak loads of ammonia. It has been demonstrated that ion exchange is a very promising tool for this purpose both for new plants to be designed and as upgrades in existing facilities.
