Abstract
The aim of this study was to assess the effect of primary treatment on the performance of two pilot-scale high rate algal ponds (HRAPs) treating urban wastewater, considering their treatment efficiency, biomass productivity, characteristics and biogas production potential. Results indicated that the primary treatment did not significantly affect the wastewater treatment efficiency (NH4+-N removal of 93 and 91% and COD removal of 62 and 65% in HRAP with and without primary treatment, respectively...
