Description: CRREL Report
Abstract: Nitrogen control in the form of ammonia removal or conversion is required, or will be required, for a significant number of military wastewater treatment systems. This report presents a summary of engineering criteria for those processes in most common use at military facilities in the cold regions. These processes include: trickling filters, treatment ponds, rotating biological contactors (RBC) and activated sludge. A design example is presented for each case. All four processes can achieve significant levels of ammonia removal or conversion. If ammonia discharge limits are 0.5 mg/L or less it may be necessary to use the activated sludge process. Trickling filters or RBC units are recommended for higher (> 1 mg/L) discharge limits. Pond systems are suitable for seasonal ammonia removal in cold climates.
