DNA of Anammox Bacteria used for Shortcut Nitrogen Removal

Anammox bacteria is the active “ingredient” for shortcut nitrogen removal or deammonification.  The anaerobic ammonia oxidizing bacteria (“AnAOB” or “anammox”) convert ammonia directly to nitrogen gas, which is a shortcut method to traditional methods that require additional steps such as oxidizing ammonia to nitrite and nitrate (nitrification) followed by nitrate and nitrite reduction to nitrogen […]
