Thiobacillus denitrificans is widely used in the autotrophic denitrification process to remove nitrate. The results from batch experiments indicated that the optimum cultivation for the growth and bioactivity of T. denitrificans could be obtained under anaerobic condition at 30°C. Besides the addition of ordinary basal mineral salts, the optimal culture medium should be composed of 40 ml of trace element solution, 15 g/l Na2S2O3·5H2O and 5.0 g/l KNO3. Under the optimum conditions, the average… CONTINUE READING
