The experiment was divided into five stages, and the ratio of ammonia nitrogen removal with aerobic granular sludge was measured by gradually increasing the concentration of ammonia nitrogen in the influent.
Several different influent flow rates were used during the operational tests, with energy use rates ranging from only 3.

The compact extended aeration reactor (CEAR) reactor in Figure 1, has influent supplied into the preanoxic chamber by a peristaltic pump, through a baffle to ensure the required hydraulic retention (HRT) time is achieved.
