Autotrophic ammonia oxidizing bacteria (AOB) are capable of generating nitrous oxide (N2O), via nitrite reduction, in oxygen-limited environments. The recognition of the environmental fate and effects of N2O, as a "greenhouse gas" has prompted researchers to study N2O generation and emission control in wastewater treatment systems. Oxygen, often expressed in terms of the bioreactor liquid dissolved oxygen concentration, is generally viewed as the most important variable with respect to… CONTINUE READING
