The contribution of ammonia-oxidizing archaea (AOA) to nitrogen removal in wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) remains unknown. This study investigated the abundance of archaeal (AOA) and bacterial (ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB)) amoA genes in eight of Bangkok’s municipal WWTPs. AOA amoA genes (3.28 × 107 ± 1.74 × 107–2.23 × 1011 ± 1.92 × 1011 copies l−1 sludge) outnumbered AOB amoA genes in most of the WWTPs even though the plants’ treatment processes, influent and effluent characteristics… CONTINUE READING
