A novel heterotrophic nitrifying bacterium was isolated from activated sludge and was identified as Acinetobacter junii YB. The strain exhibited efficient heterotrophic nitrification-aerobic denitrification ability at a broad range of ammonium loads and had the capability to utilize hydroxylamine, nitrite and nitrate as a sole nitrogen source. Based on the(More)
Acinetobacter junii YB was found to exhibit efficient heterotrophic nitrification and aerobic denitrification ability, with the maximum ammonium, nitrite and nitrate removal rate of 8.82, 8.45 and 7.98 mg/L/h, respectively. Meanwhile, ammonium was found to be removed preferentially in the process of simultaneous nitrification and denitrification in mixed(More)
Traditional process of autotrophic nitrification-anaerobic denitrification usually has problems of long procedure and low efficiency. To overcome these problems, a heterotrophic nitrification-aerobic denitrification bacterium YL was isolated from a domesticated mature SBR reactor with efficient simultaneous nitrification and denitrification ability, and was(More)
Three novel heterotrophic nitrifying bacterial strains, YB, YH and YL were isolated from a laboratory-scale sequencing batch reactor. These strains were identified as Acinetobacter junii YB, Pseudomonas putida YH and Pseudomonas aeruginosa YL, respectively. All three strains exhibited efficient heterotrophic nitrification-aerobic denitrification(More)
The depth of substrate in constructed wetlands (CWs) has a significant effect on the construction investment and the purification performance of CWs. In this study, a pilot scale CW system was operated in a domestic sewage treatment plant in Xi'an, China. The experimental systems included three-series CWs systems with substrate depths of 0.1m, 0.3 m and 0.6(More)
