    Abstract

    The macro-kinetic behavior of a 12 dm3 nitrifying biotrickling filter and micro-kinetic behavior of 2 mm nitrifying aggregates from a fluidized bed reactor were investigated. Micro-kinetics were studied with micro-electrodes for O, pH, NH4+, and NO3-. The tip diams. of .apprx.2 mm allow a sufficient spatial resoln. at negligible substrate consumption. The goal is to understand macro-kinetics in terms of the local kinetics in a nitrifying biofilm to optimize trickling filter design. [on SciFinder (R)]
