Results showed that when chemical oxygen demand (COD) and ammonia Received in revised form 29 June 2008 nitrogen (NHþ-N) concentration of the petrochemical wastewater were 320–530 mg/L and 8–25 mg/L, Accepted 30 June 2008 respectively, the bioaugmented process (S1) took only 20 days when they were below 80 mg/L and Available online 2 September 2008 10 mg/L, respectively. However, the unbioaugmented conventional activated sludge process (S2) spent30 days to reach the similar effluent quality. As the organic loading rate (OLR) increased from 0.6 to 0.9 and finally up to 1.10 kg COD/m3 d, S1 showed strong resistance to shock loadings and restored after three days compared to the seven days required by S2. Based on the results of this paper, it shows that Contact oxidation processActivated sludge process bioaugementation application is feasible and efficient for the process upgrade due to the availability of the bioaugmented specialized consortia.
