1. Difference between nitritation and nitrification.
2. Also what is the advantages/disadvantage of using Partial Nitritation/Anammox process in wastewater reclaimation plants?
Answer=1]Difference between nitritation and nitrification
|1.Nitrification is the process by which ammonium (NH4+)or ammonia is oxidised into nitrite (NO2-) by ammonia oxidizing bacteria often nitrosomonas species and NO2- further oxidized into nitrate (NO3-) by nitrite -oxidizing bacteria often nitrobacter species.||1.This is the first step of the nitrification ,and the process by which NH4+is oxidized into NO2-|
|2.There are two processes of nitrification:nitritation and nitratation.||
2.There are 3 subprocesses.
1.NH3 is oxidized into hydroxyl-amine (NH2OH) with the help of enzyme monooxygenase.
2. (NH2OH) is oxidized into NO2-
3. Electrons and oxygen & free hydrogen ions are converted into water.
