Thiobacillus denitrificans, a species of autotrophic facultative anaerobic bacterium, was found to be capable of oxidizing sulfide into elemental sulfur when nitrate was adopted as its electron acceptor and carbon dioxide as its sole carbon source under anoxic conditions. In this way, sulfur was accumulated extracellularly and nitrate was converted into nitrogen gas. Based on these special physiological characteristics, an innovative process of simultaneous desulfurization and denitrification… CONTINUE READING
