Anaerobic calcium phosphate bio granulation [PhD thesis]
Full text publicly available; under embargo until:2019-11-30
Cunha, Jorge Ricardo \ 2018
biobased economy - biobased chemistry - water - minerals

Abstract:
Anaerobic calcium phosphate bio granulation was originally observed by Tervahauta et al. (2014c) during treatment of source separated black water. However, the required conditions and mechanism behind the granulation were unknown, which limited the phosphorus recovery efficiency to only 2%. Therefore, in this thesis, the anaerobic calcium phosphate bio granulation, to enhance the process feasibility for simultaneous recovery of phosphorus and methane in a single bioreactor, was extensively investigated.

Photo-Activated Sludge: a novel algal-bacterial biotreatment for nitrogen removal from wastewater [PhD thesis]
Rada Ariza, Angélica \ 2018

Abstract:
Ammoniumrijk afvalwater wordt veelal geproduceerd door gemeentelijk, industrieel en landbouwafval, en effluent uit anaerobe afvalwaterzuiveringsmethoden. Dit vormt een risico voor het milieu vanwege de hoge concentratie aan voedingsstoffen (stikstof en fosfor), wat eutrofiëring in waterpartijen kan bevorderen en daarmee de kwaliteit van ecosystemen kan aantasten. Als innovatieve oplossing hierop is een nieuw biologisch verwerkingsmechanisme genaamd Photo-Activated Sludge (PAS) geëvalueerd, wat gebruik maakt van een consortium van microalgen en bacteriën voor de zuivering van ammoniumrijk afvalwater.

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.
