Abstract: Removal of nitrate from water resources for reducing its harm to the environment is necessary. Biological denitrification (bio-removal of nitrate) is the most versatile option amongst the other methods for removal of nitrate. The fluidised bed biofilm reactor (FBBR) is one of the recent methods which can be used for denitrification.
Keywords: anoxic; denitrification; fluidised bed biofilm reactor; FBBR; methanol; nitrate.
