The upgrading of an existing mechanical wastewater treatment plant to meet the new standards for effluent quality in the Municipality of Fredericia, Denmark, are presented. The Municipality has a lot of very big organic and inorganic industries, which leaves several different possibilities for treatment strategies. In 1987 pilot-scale tests were carried out to study the effects of various combinations of wastewater types on the treatment efficiency, and the tests resulted in two main solutions for the wastewater treatment system. The pilot-scale tests were run in a two - stage biology plant. The first stage was either a BIOSORPTION unit or a PRE-DENITRIFICATION unit. The second stage was a biological nitrogen and phosphorus removal unit (a BIO-DENIPHO unit).
