Development of Denitrification Kinetics for Alternative Supplemental Carbon Sources at Full Scale and Bench Scale
Abstract:The introduction of the Enhanced Nutrient Removal (ENR) program in Maryland and similar programs in Virginia, West Virginia, Washington DC, Pennsylvania and Delaware have created a demand for supplemental carbon sources for hundreds of WWTPs. The standard supplemental carbon source of methanol is susceptible to global pricing pressures and increased demand. The volatility in pricing along with the hazard of methanol handling and storage has created the opportunity for alternative supplemental carbon sources to enter the market. The new alternative supplemental carbon sources have not been tested in full scale or bench scale applications to determine denitrifictation kinetics, acclimation periods or stoichiometry. A full scale and parallel bench scale pilot test was conducted to provide this information on a variety of new alternative supplemental carbon sources.
