ABSTRACT:
The paper presents the efficiencof nitrogen removal from wastewater using Brenntaplus VP1 as an external carbon source. The study was conducted during the municipal wastewater treatment process in two independent activated sludge chambers of SBR type. One of the chambers contained glycerol as the source of easily available organic compounds. The study showed that the use of Brenntaplus VP1 as the external carbon source during wastewater treatment resulted in a higher efficiencof nitrogen removal than in the reactor without the external carbon source applied, resulting in low level of the COD value in the treated wastewater. There was a significant acceleration of the denitrification process as compared to the control reactor.
