Special Issue "Nitrogen Cycling in the Aquatic Ecosystem"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2023) | Viewed by 1114
Interests: waste water treatment; denitrification; nitrification; biological treatment; resource recovery
Nitrogen plays important roles in the aquatic ecosystems. Nitrification, denitrification, and anammox are the three critical processes during nitrogen cycling, especially in man-made facilities, such as wastewater treatment plants. Therefore, nitrate management is very important due to its contribution to environmental eutrophication, as well as its explicit long-term stress effect on cultured species during intensive fish farming. This Special Issue aims to invite contributions that explore the mitigation, transformation of nitrogen, and the mechanism of nitrogen cycling in the aquatic ecosystem.
Example topics of interest include, but are not limited to: microbial-based technology for nitrate-removal from wastewater; bacteria isolation for nitrification and denitrification under aerobic or anoxic conditions; nitrate-removal based on biodegradable polymers; and effect of emerging pollutants (such as antibiotics, microplastics) on nitrogen cycling.
