Long term analysis of N2O emission from partial nitritation anammox process under oxygen limitation

Abstract

Partial nitritation with anammox (PNA) process was achieved during 300 days to investigate the fate of N2O and NO. N2O emission factor increased from 0.4 ± 0.1 % up to 6.1 ± 0.3 % during intensification phase of 5 months and progressively stabilized at 2.0 ± 0.1 % after 10 months without any significant emission of NO. The emission of N2O correlated with the ammonium consumption rate and the oxygen transfer rate. Experiment carried out in anoxic condition suggested that heterotrophic denitrification poorly contributed. Measurements of δ15N, δ18O and SP of N2O demonstrated that its production resulted from the reduction of nitrite. The stimulating effect of nitrite on N2O production was demonstrated with specific tests and observed during transient nitrite accumulation periods. This study highlighted the importance of nitrite and oxygen transfer rate control for future control strategies aiming to mitigate N2O emission in PNA system.
