Anaerobic

Anaerobic conditions under wastewater transport and treatment imply that neither nitrate, sulphate nor oxygen are present for the decomposition of organic matter.

Under anaerobic conditions oxygen is not present. This is in contrast to ‘aerobic’.

Anaerobic conditions under wastewater transport and treatment imply that neither nitrate, sulphate nor oxygen (NO3-, SO42-, O2) are present for the decomposition of organic matter. Organic matter is instead decomposed by anaerobic digestion to yield smaller organic compounds.
