For many wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), side-stream treatment of reject water from digested sludge dewatering is a feasible opportunity to improve N-removal efficiency without costly plant expansion. Biological nitrogen removal over nitrite or combined partial nitritation (PN)-Anammox process has recently become a popular treatment method for such ammonium-rich streams. Shortcut nitrification and PN start-ups were successfully performed in a pilot-scale SBR treating real reject water. In all performed experiments, effective nitrate production inhibition occurred in less than 20 days due to operational conditions selection and without advanced control system. pH adjustment in the PN reactor allowed to achieve NO2-N /NH4-N ratio suitable for Anammox process (1.24±0.07).
