The biological nitrogen removal (BNR) process is the most common method for removing low quantities of ammonium from wastewater, but this method is not used for wastewater rich with ammonium. In this study, we have developed the physicochemical nitrogen removal process to remove the nitrogen content for a real industrial wastewater. The denitrification was accomplished by the physicochemical denitrification process using zinc powder and sulfamic acid in pH 2-4. The experimental parameters were examined by varying various reaction conditions such as pH, zinc feeding time, amount of sulfamic acid, and amount of nitrate concentration. For each experimental condition, the physicochemical denitrification process was determined by pH, amount of zinc powder and sulfamic acid, zinc feeding time and nitrate concentration.
