There are several different processes for removing ammonia, but some of the more common processes include:
- Biological processes: In this process, bacteria are used to convert ammonia into other less toxic compounds such as nitrates and nitrites.
- Chemical processes: In this process, ammonia is neutralized or precipitated using chemical reagents such as calcium chloride or sulfuric acid.
- Physical processes: In this process, ammonia is removed from solution using physical techniques such as distillation, evaporation or filtration.
The processes used will depend on the type of source and concentration of ammonia, in addition to the final objective of the treatment. In some cases, ammonia removal can be accomplished through a combination of different processes.
