Get this from a library. Impact of nitrilotriacetic acid (NTA) on an activated sludge plant: a field study. [N Wei;]. Good reference book to have, if you are studying wastewater treatment and would like a more in depth understanding about the topics.

It would help to clarify fundamental mechanism of activated sludge hence nitrification and denitrification in wastewater treatment processes.

A one-week acclimatization period was needed in the. Experiments with the degradation of morpholine (MO), sulphanilic acid (SA), nitrilotriacetic acid (NTA) and methanol (MA) were carried out in completely-mixed systems at constant volumetric loading (B v) and variable solids retention time (SRT).In the first series, a mixed substrate composed of the above compounds was used (each compound formed 25% of the total COD), in the Cited by: Nitrilotriacetic acid (NTA) adsorption onto sawdust activated carbon was studied.

The adsorption process was highly pH dependent and has been explained on the basis of. Sulfamethazine (SMT) is extensively used as growth promoters and antibacterial drugs. In this study, premagnetized Fe 0 was used to catalyze H 2 O 2 decomposition (pre-Fe 0 /H 2 O 2) in the presence of nitrilotriacetic acid (NTA) to remove SMT at neutral pH all, % and % of SMT were removed by the pre-Fe 0 /H 2 O 2 process (60 min) and the pre-Fe 0-NTA/H 2 O 2.

The biodegradation of nitrilotriacetic acid (NTA) was examined in three estuarine ecosystems, one of which had been exposed previously to the chemical. Activated sludge degradation of nitrilotriacetic acid book was measured as the conversion of radiolabeled NTA to 14 CO 2, 14 C‐labeled cells and the amount of label remaining in solution.

In this study, a novel stratification approach aimed at better understanding the factors influencing the sludge dewaterability (as determined by capillary suction time, CST) was developed. The sludge flocs from 14 different full-scale wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), including sewage, leachate.

Effects of nitrilotriacetic acid (NTA), copper ion (Cu2+) and their complexes on the efficiency of activated sludge process were evaluated by determining the changes in physical and chemical parameters in a laboratory-scale unit.

Primary effects of these toxicants on microorganisms in the activated sludge process were also evaluated by determining the change of in vivo dehydrogenase. A series of experiments were undertaken using an activated sludge pilot plant treating settled sewage to determine the effects of transient temperatur.

The removal of nitrilotriacetic acid (NTA) following acclimatization in an activated sludge pilot plant has been studied during transient changes in operating conditions.

These changes included increases in hydraulic loading and influent chemical oxygen demand (COD) and such phenomena in combination with transient temperature reductions. Short-term increases in hydraulic loading from 1 to 2. The large volume of oil sands process-affected water (OSPW) produced by the oil sands industry in Northern Alberta, Canada, is an environmental concern.

The toxicity of OSPW has been attributed to a complex mixture of naturally occurring acids, including naphthenic acids (NAs). Highly cyclic or branched NAs are highly biopersistent in tailings ponds, thus understanding structure–reactivity.

The removal of nitrilotriacetic acid (NTA) following acclimatization in an activated sludge pilot plant has been studied during transient changes in operating conditions.

The removal of Cd, Cr, Cu, Pb, Ni, and Zn in an activated sludge pilot plant acclimatized to nitrilotriacetic acid (NTA) has been compared with an identically operated plant receiving no NTA. During steady-state operation the removal of Pb and Ni was reduced in the presence of NTA but there was no detectable difference in mixed liquor metal concentrations.

NTA Na3. The waste-activated sludge was obtained from an activated sludge plant that was acclimated to degradation of NTA-Na3.

The digestion process was moni tored for 2 wk. Operation was satisfactory, and the concentration of NTA-Na3 in the digester contents remained near 20 mg/1.

It is a colourless solid that is used as a chelating agent, which forms coordination compounds with metal ions (chelates) such as Ca 2+, Co 2+, Cu 2+, and Fe 3+. Optimum 14CO2 evolution was observed at a pH value between 7 and 8 and at room temperature.

Degradation of NH4Fe-[C]EDTA was stimulated by the addition of either unlabeled NaFe-EDTA, nitrilotriacetic acid or ethylenediamine, and inhibited by the addition of a variety of different sugars and amino acids. Trichloroethene (TCE) degradation by Fe(III)- activated calcium peroxide (CP) in the presence of citric acid (CA) in aqueous solution was investigated.
