This session will be composed of two presentations.
Old School Meets Modern Technology: TMWRF's Nutrient Removal Success Story
Meeting stringent Nitrogen discharge limits reliably with older treatment technology is a big challenge. During this session, you will learn how collaborative planning led to cost effective short term and long term solutions for TMWRF.
Deammonification Using Separate Partial Nitritation and Anammox Reactors at HWRP
Compared to the high operation cost and energy intensive of conventional biological nitrogen removal, this session provides the pioneering shortcut in nitrogen removal using resilient two-stage partial nitritation + anammox system and pilot study at Hyperion Water Reclamation Plant.
