Problems with meeting nitrogen standards at the 's-Hertogenbosch WWTP in The Netherlands led to an examination of a number of technologies to improve the performance. A new side stream process, called BABE, was selected after an feasibility study. In September 2005, the BABE process went into operation. The first-ever application of this innovative process has proved successful. The augmentation of nitrifying bacteria within the activated sludge process increased the nitrification capacity at the plant and thus improves nitrogen removal.
