Abstract
The feasibility of inducing nitrate attenuation using a sub-product of the wine industry was tested at laboratory scale by means of a flow through experiment. Periodical injections of the wine industry by-product (mainly consisting on ethanol) were performed. The experiment lasted for 80 days and different C/N ratios were used. Results showed complete nitrate attenuation with transient nitrite accumulation, though nitrite was only detected in the first 12 days of sampling. The isotopic fractiona...
