This white paper discusses the process of nitrification (oxidizing ammonia to remove nitrogenous compounds from wastewater). It explains the science behind how nitrification works and how the process can be optimized. Most wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) are required to remove ammonia from wastewater before releasing into receiving streams. Bioaugmentation is an effective and cost efficient way to reduce ammonia nitrogen levels in wastewater.
