Nitrification Bioaugmentation in an Activated Sludge Process

Augmenting wastewater processes with cultures of nitrifying bacteria can increase abundance and nitrification efficiency correspondingly. Additionally, implementing organic matter degrading microbiology in a system can increase the time available for bacteria to oxidize ammonia.1 The following case study describes the efficacy of BioLynceus® bioaugmentation for improving nitrification in an activated sludge system with fixed media trickling filters.
