Abstract

The hydrolysis of elemental sulfur (S0) coupled to S0-based denitrification and denitritation was investigated in batch bioassays by microbiological and modeling approaches. In the denitrification experiments, the highest obtained NO3--N removal rate was 20.9 mg/l·d. In the experiments with the biomass enriched on NO2-, a NO2--N removal rate of 10.7 mg/l·d was achieved even at a NO2--N concentration as high as 240 mg/l. The Helicobacteraceae family was only observed in the biofilm attached onto the chemically-synthesized S0 particles with a relative abundance up to 37.1%, suggesting it was the hydrolytic biomass capable of S0 solubilization in the novel surface-based model. S0-driven denitrification was modeled as a two-step process in order to explicitly account for the sequential reduction of NO3- to NO2- and then to N2 by denitrifying bacteria.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 01 April 2018.
All research outputs
#7,679,731
of 12,739,396 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Environmental Management
#1,290
of 2,169 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#151,667
of 273,862 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Environmental Management
#43
of 69 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,739,396 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 37th percentile – i.e., 37% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,169 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.1. This one is in the 38th percentile – i.e., 38% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 273,862 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 40th percentile – i.e., 40% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 69 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 36th percentile – i.e., 36% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
