Carbon Requirements For Denitrification

As shown in the derivations, carbon is necessary during denitrification. Because the organisms responsible for this process are heterotrophs, sewage was provided as the source. The pertinent reactions for the heterotrophic side reaction, normal anoxic denitrification reaction, and the nitrite-reduction side reaction are given, respectively, in Eqs. (15.43), (15.44), and (15.45).

From Equation (15.43), the number of moles of sewage needed per mole of oxygen is r + q
