Treatment of High-strength Ammonia Nitrogen Wastewater by Polyvinyl Alcohol–Sodium Alginate Immobilization of Activated Sludge

Treatment of High-strength Ammonia Nitrogen Wastewater by Polyvinyl Alcohol–Sodium Alginate Immobilization of Activated Sludge
Microorganism embedded immobilization technology was employed to treat high-strength ammonia nitrogen wastewater. Experiments were conducted in batch reactors with different initial ammonia concentrations (50–400mg/L), 10% particle dosage rates, 7.5–8.5pH, and 8h operation period; stable ammonium removal efficiency was reached in the 28th, 40th, 55th, 58th, and 58th periods. The average ammonia removal rate were 100%, 100%, 80.94%, 64.62%, and 48.03%, respectively, and results were consistent with zero-order reaction kinetics. Immobilized particles were visualized using Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (technique of characterizing solids, BET) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). The specific surface area and pore size of stabilized particles were larger than those of fresh immobilized particles, and microbial attachments were found in the interior and surface of particles. High-throughput sequencing showed that the microbial community composition significantly differed between the interior and surface of embedded particles. The existence of heterotrophic nitrifying and aerobic denitrifying bacteria enhanced biological denitrification in reactors.
