A Better Path To Ammonia Removal

Ammonia removal is a key metric for assessing wastewater treatment facility performance. However, traditional methods to monitor the process — based on measuring process parameters or nitrogen species — tend to be lagging indicators.

The good news is that an emerging generation of new monitoring tools is challenging preconceived notions of how treatment facilities should be operated.

In this Water Talk interview at WEFTEC 2019, Jordan Schmidt, an applications manager with LuminUltra Technologies, discusses how microbiology is providing deeper insight into the conditions that drive optimal nitrification rates.
