Sulfide inhibition of nitrification

Delgado Vela, J., Dick, G.J., Love, N.G.  Sulfide inhibition of nitrite oxidation in activated sludge depends on microbial community composition. 2018. Water Research. 

Research QUESTIONS

  • How does sulfide inhibit ammonia oxidizing microorganism and nitrite oxidizing bacteria?
  • How does wastewater treatment process impact sulfide inhibition?

research Approach

 Analyzing activated sludge from two different treatment processes to obtain inhibition constants.
