Abstract [en]

This master thesis is based on own studies. A four-month study was performed at Hammarby Sjostad Research Station, which is located in Stockholm. One-stage deammonification process was evaluated in two different system configurations in pilot plant scale.

The theoretical background for this thesis works is presented in the first part and where is presented negative impacts of nitrogen compounds in environment and requirements for purified wastewater in European Union (Sweden and Poland). In the next part of the thesis the nitrogen cycle is described and with focus on biological reactions for nitrogen removal. Especially, nitrification/denitrification and anammox processes are described with special focus on parameters affecting the anammox process performance and its advantages and disadvantages of using this process. Experimental results from the four-month study and evaluation of the microbial activity are described in the last part.
