The paper describes the upgrading of an existing conventional two-stage municipal wastewater treatment plant for 200,000 PE to meet the EEC and Slovenian high effluent quality demands for nitrogen. The incoming wastewater is highly loaded with industrial waste and specifically with effluent from anaerobic pretreatment of piggery sludge. The low-cost concept of extensive wastewater treatment is based on integrating appropriate technologies into an existing treatment facility, preserving as much of the technical infrastructure as possible. The proposed concept uses a predenitrification system for the elimination of nitrogen.
