Description of a pilot installation for municipal wastewater treatment. The simultaneous elimination of organic carbon and nitrogen carried out by a fluidized bed reactor with aerobic and anaerobic areas. The presentation of experimental results corresponding to a model of the flow and behaviour of the above mentioned elimination of organic material and nitrogen. Presentation of information concerning the characteristics of COD, N-NH3, N-NOx, pH, Redox Potential and D.O. throughout the reactor. Levels of purification reached: CODS>80%. (BOD5)S>90%; N-TKN>80%; N-NTotal>70%.

    Water treatment facilities report that when reactivated granular activated carbon (GAC) is returned to service, pH excursions may occur, resulting in high pH of the treated water (e.g., pH > 9) as a result of a calcium chemistry mechanism. While air treatments and carbon dioxide (CO2) treatments...
