Other bioreactor studies
The ”MiNing” research project was a precursor to the NITREM project, wherein a pilot-scale bioreactor was constructed, also at LKAB's Kiruna site. This project resulted in the following publications:
Nordström, A., Hellman, M., Hallin, S., Herbert, R.B. (2021) Microbial Controls on Net Production of Nitrous Oxide in a Denitrifying Woodchip Bioreactor. J. Environ. Qual. 50, 228 – 240.
Nordström, A., Herbert, R.B. (2019) Identification of the Temporal Control on Nitrate Removal Rate Variability in a Denitrifying Woodchip Bioreactor. Ecol. Engin. 127, 88 – 95.
Nordström, A., Herbert, R.B. (2018) Determination of major biogeochemical processes in a denitrifying woodchip bioreactor for treating mine drainage. Ecol. Engin. 110, 54-66.
Prior to the MiNing project, a sawdust-filled surface-based bioreactor was tested at LKAB's Malmberget site. This publication resulted from this project:
Herbert, R., Winbjörk, H., Hellman, M., Hallin, S. (2014) Nitrogen removal and spatial distribution of denitrifier and anammox communities in a bioreactor for mine drainage treatment. Water Research 66, 350-360.
