Details: With the strict nutrient controlling regulations many wastewater treatment operations are looking towards biological denitrification processes. The alkalinity of wastewater can be used as a process indicator and drives several biological processes. We will discuss how these parameters and processes impact each other and how they can be utilized to achieve higher treatment quality. During this 3-hour live online workshop we will address -Alkalinty: Definition, analytical methods, biological effects on alkalinity & pH, wastewater treatment plant effects on alkalinity - Volatile Acids: Definition, analytical methods, Wastewater treatment plant effects on volatile acids - Nitrification / Denitrification: Nitrogen species, nitrifying & denitrifying organisms, chemistry behind nitrification / denitrification, Factors affecting nitrification / denitrification various approaches to nutrient removal
