Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from R&D Center, "The maximum growth rates (mu (m)), half-saturation coefficients (K (S)), microbial yields (Y) and decay coefficients (k (d)) of N. nitrosa and N. cryotolerans were 1.77 and 1.21 day(-1), 23.25 and 23.06 mg N center dot L-1, 16 x 10(8) and 1 x 10(8) copies center dot mg N-1, 0.26 and 0.20 day(-1), respectively. The estimated coefficients were applied for modeling continuous operations at various hydraulic retention times (HRTs) with an influent ammonia concentration of 300 mg N center dot L-1. Modeling results revealed that ammonia oxidation efficiencies were achieved 55-98 % at 0.8-10 days HRTs and that the system was predicted to be washed out at HRT of 0.7 days. Overall, use of QPCR for estimating biokinetic coefficients of the two AOB cluster growing simultaneously by use of ammonia were successful."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "This idea may open a new direction towards biokinetics of ammonia oxidation in which respirometry tests are usually employed."
