Microbiomes of full-scale seawater reverse osmosis membranes are complex and subject to variation within and between membrane units. The pre-existing bacterial communities of unused membranes before operation have been largely ignored in biofouling studies. This study is novel as unused membranes were used as a critical benchmark for comparison. Fouled seawater reverse osmosis membrane biofilm communities from an array of autopsied membrane samples, following a 7-year operational life-span in a full-scale desalination plant in Western Australia, were characterised by 16S rRNA gene metabarcoding using the bacterial primers 515F and 806R...

The injection of nitrate is one of the most commonly used technologies to impact the sulfur cycle in subsurface oil fields. Nitrate injection enhances the activity of nitrate-reducing bacteria, which produce nitrite inhibiting sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB). Subsequent reduction of nitrate to di-nitrogen (N2) alleviates the inhibition of SRB by nitrite. It has been shown for the Medicine Hat Glauconitic C (MHGC) field, that alkylbenzenes especially toluene are important electron donors for the reduction of nitrate to nitrite and N2...

This study proposes a biological nitrogen removal system for freshwater aquaria consisting of a down-flow hanging sponge (DHS) and an up-flow sludge blanket (USB). DHS-USB systems can perform nitrification and denitrification simultaneously, reducing ammonia (NH3) and nitrate (NO3(-)) toxicity in the water. The performance of the system was evaluated using on-site fresh water aquaria at ambient temperature (23-34°C) over 192 days. NH3 and nitrite (NO2(-)) were maintained at a detection limit of 0.01 mg N L(-1) and NO3(-) was maintained below 10 mg N L(-1), despite limited water exchange...

The nitrogen (N)-use efficiency of agricultural plants is notoriously poor. Globally, about 50% of the N fertilizer applied to cropping systems is not absorbed by plants, but lost to the environment as ammonia (NH3), nitrate (NO3(-)), and nitrous oxide (N2O, a greenhouse gas with 300 times the heat-trapping capacity of carbon dioxide), raising agricultural production costs and contributing to pollution and climate change. These losses are driven by volatilization of NH3 and by a matrix of nitrification and denitrification reactions catalysed by soil microorganisms (chiefly bacteria and archaea)...

Combined partial nitritation-anaerobic ammonium oxidation (anammox) processes have been widely applied for nitrogen removal from anaerobic digestion reject water. However, such streams also contain dissolved methane that can escape to the atmosphere, hence contributing to global warming. This study investigates the possibility of integrating methane removal in aerobic anammox-based granular sludge reactors, through modelling and simulation. Methane removal could be established through aerobic methane-oxidizing bacteria (MOB), denitrifying anaerobic methane-oxidizing bacteria (damoB, NO2(-) + CH4à N2 + CO2), and/or archaea (damoA, NO3(-) + CH4à NO2(-) + CO2)...

Ceria (CeO2) is an exciting alternative noble metal catalyst, because it has ability to release and absorb oxygen in the redox system, and function as an oxygen buffer. In this study, heterostructured catalysts consisting of CeO2/Y2O3 nanocomposites were successfully synthesized by hydrothermal method in the presence of sodium hydroxide as a reducing agent from cerium nitrate and yttrium nitrate as a precursor which was then evaluated for its photocatalytic activity in the degradation of Rhodamine B (RhB) synthetic dye...

Little is known about large sulfur bacteria (LSB) that inhabit sulfidic groundwater seeps in large lakes. To examine how geochemically relevant microbial metabolisms are partitioned among community members, we conducted metagenomic analysis of a chemosynthetic microbial mat in the Isolated Sinkhole, which is in a deep, aphotic environment of Lake Huron. For comparison, we also analyzed a white mat in an artesian fountain that is fed by groundwater similar to Isolated Sinkhole, but that sits in shallow water and is exposed to sunlight...

Bacteria of Dechloromonas were recognized as potential functional important denitrifiers in a long term shell sand amended peat soil. Different microcosms in a solid matrix and slurry systems with the addition of carbon and nitrogen sources, e.g., clover leaves, glutamate, and nitrate, were established. The bacterial community structures were analyzed by pyrosequencing of the 16S rRNA gene to select the conditions for enriching bacteria of Dechloromonas. The results showed that a relatively even bacterial community in the initial soil shifted to communities dominated by a few types of nitrate reducing bacteria after the incubation, which strongly responded to the carbon substrates addition and consumption...

BACKGROUND: Microalgae have shown clear advantages for the production of biofuels compared with energy crops. Apart from their high growth rates and substantial lipid/triacylglycerol yields, microalgae can grow in wastewaters (animal, municipal and mining wastewaters) efficiently removing their primary nutrients (C, N, and P), heavy metals and micropollutants, and they do not compete with crops for arable lands. However, fundamental barriers to the industrial application of microalgae for biofuel production still include high costs of removing the algae from the water and the water from the algae which can account for up to 30-40% of the total cost of biodiesel production...

The insufficient supply of electron donor in surface water contaminated with nitrate leads to its incomplete reduction in natural or constructed wetlands. Although the addition of organic matter (represented as chemical oxygen demand, COD) can stimulate N removal by denitrification, direct supplementation of COD creates unacceptable risks to effluent quality. An alternative for stimulating denitrification is supplying hydrogen gas (H2) as an inorganic electron donor. We evaluate an innovative means to do H2-based denitrification of surface waters in a wetland setting: the in-situ membrane biofilm reactor (isMBfR), in which H2 is delivered to a biofilm of denitrifying bacteria on demand based on the presence of nitrate...

Most described nitrate-reducing Fe(II)-oxidizing bacteria (NRFeOB) are mixotrophic and depend on organic cosubstrates for growth. Encrustation of cells in Fe(III) minerals has been observed for mixotrophic NRFeOB but not for autotrophic phototrophic and microaerophilic Fe(II) oxidizers. So far, little is known about cell-mineral associations in the few existing autotrophic NRFeOB. Here, we investigate whether the designated autotrophic Fe(II)-oxidizing strain (closely related to Gallionella and Sideroxydans) or the heterotrophic nitrate reducers that are present in the autotrophic nitrate-reducing Fe(II)-oxidizing enrichment culture KS form mineral crusts during Fe(II) oxidation under autotrophic and mixotrophic conditions...

REVIEW
Yuriy Kryachko, Sean M Hemmingsen
Microbially influenced corrosion is of great industrial concern. Microbial coupling of metal oxidation to sulfate-, nitrate-, nitrite-, or CO2-reduction is proton-mediated, and some sulfate-reducing prokaryotes are capable of regulating extracellular pH. The analysis of the corrosive processes catalyzed by nitrate reducing bacteria and methanogenic archaea indicates that these microorganisms may be capable of regulating extracellular pH as well. It is proposed that nutrient limitation at metal-biofilm interfaces may induce activation of enzymatic proton-producing/proton-secreting functions in respiratory and methanogenic microorganisms to make them capable of using Fe(0) as the electron donor...

Lectins from the haemolymph of arthropods, including crustaceans, are molecules potentially involved in the immune recognition and phagocytosis. Here, lectin was purified from the haemolymph of blue swimmer crab Portunus pelagicus, using mannose-coupled sepharose CL-4B affinity column chromatography. In SDS-PAGE analysis, lectin showed a molecular mass of approximately 155kDa. The synthesis of lectin-coated silver nanoparticles (lectin-coated AgNPs) was confirmed by UV-Vis spectroscopy, XRD, FTIR, SEM, TEM, SAED, and EDX analysis...

We report a facile route for the green synthesis of trimethyl chitosan nitrate-capped silver nanoparticles (TMCN-AgNPs) with positive surface charge. In this synthesis, silver nitrate, glucose, and trimethyl chitosan nitrate (TMCN) were used as silver precursor, reducing agent, and stabilizer, respectively. The reaction was carried out in a stirred basic aqueous medium at room temperature without the use of energy-consuming or expensive equipment. We investigated the effects of the concentrations of NaOH, glucose, and TMCN on the particle size, zeta potential, and formation yield...

Studies proved that addition of nitrate in rumen could lead to reduction of methane emission. The mechanism of this function was involved in the competition effect of nitrate on hydrogen consumption and the inhibitory effect of generated nitrite on methanogen proliferation. The present study investigated an alternative mechanism that denitrifying anaerobic methane oxidizing (DAMO) bacteria, DAMO archaea and anammox bacteria may co-exist in rumen, therefore, more methane can be oxidized when addition of nitrate...

The bacterial diversity of a naturally seeping bitumen source was investigated by 16S rRNA gene cloning and sequencing. Epsilonproteobacteria were shown to dominate the bacterial diversity in the underground water and within the bitumen, representing ca. 75% of the total bacterial diversity. These Epsilonproteobacteria were dominated by Sulfurimonas OTUs, while Sulfurovum and Arcobacter OTUs completed the remaining diversity. Epsilonproteobacteria are sulfur-oxidizer, nitrate-reducing chemo-lithoautotrophic bacteria, unable to use most organics for growth but capable of CO2 fixation...
