As for the nitrification process, a combined expression for the denitrifer growth jid and nitrate removal, taking some of the environmental factors into account, can be formulated.
Removal rates can be related to growth rates through equation (4.34).
Timmermanns and Van Hauten (1983) proposed an equation similar to (4.34), that also takes the influence of pH and temperature into account:
Assuming zero order kinetics, the equation proposed by Timmermann etal. (1983) can be rewritten as:
