Example 15.1 A domestic wastewater with a flow of 20,000 m /d is to be denitrified. The effluent from the nitrification tank contains 30 mg/L of NO3-N, 2.0 mg/L of dissolved oxygen, and 0.5 mg/L of NO2-N. If the total nitrate nitrogen is to be destroyed by 95%, calculate the total ammonia nitrogen produced from the reactions and total nitrogen in the effluent.

Solution:

Referring to Table 15.3, assume:

Yc = 0.35 mg VSS/mg BOD, = 7.08( 10-')( and assume f BOD = 0.67.

Yc = 7.08( 10-4)(lO^ mmo' Cdls = 3.7(10-4) c v \0.67jmmol sewage v y mmol cells mmol sewage 'mmol sewage r' = |f = 0.0625 mmol/L

Ydn = 9/.'43 = 0.112 fp. = 0.95 p" = 30/14 = 2.14 mmol/L Ydc = 0.05 mg VSS/mg BOD5 (from Table 15.3)

Ydc = 7.08( 10-4 )f'°051 = 5.28( 10-5) t' = 05 = 0.0357 mmol/L V 0.67y 4

Therefore,

[ NH4 N]mmol = 5?[^'_2t(3'.7V)(,1^:4)](0.0625 )+ T0 (0.95 )(2.14)

= 5.0 (10-3) + 0.067 + 2.22( 10-3) = 0.074 mmol/L ^ 1.036 mg/L Ans [ TN ]mmol = 0.074 + (1 - 0.95)(2.14) = 0.181 mmol/L ^ 2.53 mg/L Ans

Example 15.2 A domestic wastewater with a flow of 20,000 m /d is to be denitrified. The effluent from the nitrification tank contains 30 mg/L of NO3-N, 2.0 mg/L of dissolved oxygen, and 0.5 mg/L of NO2-N. If the total nitrate nitrogen in the effluent is limited by the state agency to 3.0 mg/L, calculate the percent destruction of the nitrate nitrogen and the ammonia nitrogen concentration in the effluent.
