National Research Effort Delivers Systematic Approach to Stabilizing the Performance of Enhanced Biological Phosphorus Removal
Black & Veatch led an investigation by The Water Research Foundation (WRF) into a wastewater treatment configuration shown to improve the performance of enhanced biological phosphorus removal (EBPR). Building on knowledge from prior research and existing projects, the investigation established a standard approach to encouraging biomass fermentation in sidestream EBPR, or S2EPBR, systems. From a process engineering perspective encompassing design, operations, and modeling considerations, the research focused on optimizing process stability while minimizing energy costs and enabling decarbonization of the biological nutrient removal process.
