Measurement of maximum nitrifier specific growth rate for use in activated sludge modeling.


The objective of this study was to measure the maximum specific growth rate of nitrifying bacteria active in municipal wastewater treatment plants. The operation of the plants was simulated using bench scale sequencing batch reactors (SBRs) operated at solids retention times ranging from eight to 20 days at 20
