Abstract: In this study, four kinetic parameters of autotrophic denitrifiers in fixed-bed sulfur-limestone autotrophic denitrification (SLAD) columns were evaluated. The curve-matching method was used by conducting 22 non-steady-state tests for estimation of half-velocity constant, K(s) and maximum specific substrate utilization rate, k. To estimate the bacteria yield coefficient, Y and the decay coefficient, k(d), two short term batch tests (before and after the starvation of the autotrophic denitrifiers) were conducte…
