Unformatted text preview: What is the design solids residence time?
c.) Estimate the effluent NH4-N concentration leaving the activated sludge process. d.) Assuming that the production of nitrifying biomass is negligible when compared to the
production of heterotrophic biomass, estimate the fraction of the TKN that is oxidized to nitrate
when the nitrogen content of grown biomass is 0.12 mg N/mg VSS. 25.3/35 = 0.72 ---> 72% removed 3.) The following table describes the operating conditions of an anoxic -aerobic activated
sludge process that is achieving 85% nitrogen removal from the wastewater stream
(considering both NH4-N and NO3-N).
