This thesis investigates the partial nitritation/Anammox in one-stage system und oxygen limited condition (also called CANON or Deaomonification) and with the Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) technology. Anammox process coupled with partial nitritation can be particularly suitable to treat ammonium-rich wastewater with low content of biodegradable organic matter, such as the reject water from the dewatering of digest sludge, which is usually recirculated back to the mainstream of wastewater treatment plants, accounting for the 15-20% of total nitrogen load.
