Bacteria responsible for ammonia oxidization (AOB) can be differed into two groups which have different bio kinetic parameters. Those groups are slow growing bacteria with lower half saturation coefficient for NH4 (k -strategist) and fast growing bacteria with higher half saturation coefficient for NH4 (r- strategist). By controlling operational conditions of process it is possible to create dominance of one of those colonies to enhance the nitrification rate. Therefore model of sequencing bath reactor was developed to study the correlation of bioaugmentation of the side stream breeder reactor and predominant AOB culture. The course of the study was to find the minimal bioaugmentation influent of AOB rich recycled sludge to create dominance of k-strategist in the side stream reactor with maintaining maximal possible increase of overall AOB load. In addition operating conditions like sludge retention time, NH4 concentration and loading regimes was investigated to determine the optimum for the process.
