Resum
A microbial fuel cell (MFC) was used to study nitrogen dynamics and its feasibility for high strength wastewater treatment. Intermittent aeration was applied on the cathode chamber accomplishing the establishment of a simultaneous nitrifying-denitrifying microbial community. A total of 30.4% of the N-NH4+ migrated through the ion exchange membrane being primarily nitrified at the cathode chamber. When intermittent aeration was applied in the cathode, denitrification also occurred achieving 17.8%...
