Abstract

The present study investigates the enrichment of anaerobic ammonium oxidation (anammox) bacteria in the marine environment using sediment samples obtained from a sea-based waste disposal site and discusses the construction of marine anammox bioreactor. Enrichment of bacteria related to Candidatus Scalindua wagneri along with simultaneous removal of nitrite and ammonium ions was observed in the continuous bioreactor culture under a total nitrogen loading rate of 0.4 kg-N m(-3) day(-1).
