From cell yields of Thiomicrospira denitrificans grown in the chemostat at different growth rates under anaerobic conditions a value of 1.4mm S2O inf3 sup= per g dry wt and per h could be calculated for maintenance energy requirements, and of 5.65 g dry wt per mole S2O inf3 sup= for the true growth yield. Cell yields of Thiomicrospira denitrificans appeared to be almost half of those of Thiobacillus denitrificans. Though in Thiobacillus denitrificans at D=0.03 h-1 under anaerobic conditions a… CONTINUE READING
