Toelichting (Engels) Although simultaneous P-removal and nitrate reduction has been observed in laboratory studies as well as full-scale plants, there are contradictory reports on the ability of PAO I to efficiently use nitrate as electron acceptor. Such discrepancy could be due to other microbial groups performing partial denitrification from nitrate to nitrite. The denitrification capacities of two different cultures, a highly enriched PAO I and a PAO I-GAO cultures were assessed through batch activity tests conducted before and after acclimatization to nitrate. Negligible anoxic phosphate uptake coupled with a reduction of nitrate was observed in the highly enriched PAO I culture. On the opposite, the PAO I-GAO culture showed a higher anoxic phosphate uptake activity. Both cultures exhibited good anoxic phosphate uptake activity with nitrite (8.7 ± 0.3 and 9.6 ± 1.8 mgPO4-P/gVSS.h in the PAO I and PAO I-GAO cultures, respectively). These findings suggest that other microbial populations, such as GAOs, were responsible to reduce nitrate to nitrite in this EBPR system, and that PAO I used the nitrite generated for anoxic phosphate uptake. Moreover, the simultaneous denitrification and phosphate removal process using nitrite as electron acceptor may be a more sustainable process as can: i) reduce the carbon consumption, ii) reduce oxygen demand of WWTP, and iii) due to a lower growth yield contribute to a lower sludge production.

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.
