A modification of the two sludge A2/O-BAF system was used to treat low C/N real domestic sewage. In order to improve the utilization of the carbon source, the effects of two step feeds (pre-anoxic zone and anoxic zone) on denitrifying phosphorus and nitrate removal were studied. According to the formula of material balance for COD, the utilization of carbon source was analyzed and evaluated under different ratios of step feed, simultaneously. The results showed that when the ratio of step feed was 7:3 and the influent concentrations of COD, NH4+-N, TN, and TP were 174.99, 58.19, 59.10, and 5.15 mg·L-1, respectively, their effluent concentrations were 29.48, 4.07, 14.10, and 0.40 mg·L-1, and the removal rates were 82.12%, 92.76%, 75.45%, and 91.20%, respectively. It was found that when the ratio of the denitrifying phosphorus accumulation organisms to the phosphorus accumulation organisms(DPAOs/PAOs) was 98.81%, the efficiencies of denitrifying phosphorus and nitrate removal were optimum. By optimizing step feed, the carbon source was utilized effectively, and the efficiencies of nitrogen and phosphorus removal were improved simultaneously. The theoretical basis has thus been provided for the modification of the two sludge A2/O-BAF system to treat low C/N waste water.
