Toelichting (Engels) A mathematical model describing the interaction between nitrifiers, heterotrophs and predators in wastewater treatment has been developed. The inclusion of a predation mechanism is a new addition to the existing activated sludge models. The developed model considered multi-substrate consumption and multi-species growth, maintenance and decay in a culture where nitrifiers, heterotrophs and predators (protozoa and metazoa) are coexisting. Two laboratory-scale sequenced batch reactors (SBRs) operated at different sludge retention time (SRT) of 30 and 100 days for a period of 4 years were used to calibrate and validate the model. Moreover, to assess the predator activity, a simple procedure was developed, based on measuring the respiration rate with and without the presence of the predators

To support researchers to publish their research Open Access, deals have been negotiated with various publishers. Depending on the deal, a discount is provided for the author on the Article Processing Charges that need to be paid by the author to publish an article Open Access. A discount of 100% means that (after approval) the author does not have to pay Article Processing Charges.

For the approval of an Open Access deal for an article, the corresponding author of this article must be affiliated with Wageningen University & Research.
