Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine whether continuous flow SBR could provide efficient pollutant removal in domestic wastewater. The experiment was carried out using a pilot scale at Tehran University of Medical Sciences and in wastewater treatment plant. The results showed that 97.7% of BOD removal, 94.9% COD removal, 85.4% TKN removal, 71.4 % TN removal, 55.9% TP removal and 99% TSS removal could be achieved by the system.
