Luofang Wastewater Treatment Plant adopted a new concept of enhanced biological phosphorus removal in combination with a traditional Triple Ditch (T-Ditch) process to optimize the efficiency of biological phosphorus removal. The new concept included the addition of a thickener and anaerobic cell ahead of the T-Ditch system. Recorded data shows that the modified system is operating successfully with effluent which is much better than most T-Ditch systems. It also shows that it has better treatment efficiency than other complicated biological treatment processes with the same wastewater characteristics and same temperature conditions.
