The increasing use of engineered Ag nanoparticles (NPs) in consumer products raises great concerns about their environmental impacts, but their potential impact on anaerobic ammonium oxidation (anammox) bacteria in wastewater treatment remains unclear. In this study, the response of anammox consortia inhabiting in granules to long-term exposure of AgNPs was… CONTINUE READING
