In this study an anaerobic-anoxic SBR(sequencing batch reactor) was used in order to investigate the possibility of phosphorus removal process. Comparison of stoichiometry and kinetics with the conventional anaerobic-aerobic SBR system shows a similar potential for phosphorus removal by denitrifying organisms. Therefore in the design of phosphorus removal processes one should not be afraid of nitrate, but use it.
