  • Anaerobic ammonium oxidizing (anammox) bacteria oxidize ammonium to dinitrogen gas with nitrite as the electron acceptor. These bacteria are the key players in the global nitrogen cycle, responsible for the most of nitrogen production in natural ecosystems. The anammox process is also a cost-effective and environment-friendly alternative to conventional ammonium removal from wastewater streams. Still, little is known about the metabolism and niche differentiation of anammox bacteria. The… CONTINUE READING
