3] in soil solution which is dependent on the amount of ammoniacal N present and soil solution pH.
The first stage known as Nitrification, where ammoniacal nitrogen is oxidized into nitrites, and these in turn into nitrates, requiring 4.
Nonetheless, confirmation of a bioremediation effect and nitrogen assimilation pathway must still be tested for selected bacteria in order to determine nitrification, ammoniacal degradation from feeds and global contribution to regeneration rates in intensive aquaculture shrimp systems.
This study focuses on investigating the unltrasonication process efficiency in treating ammoniacal nitrogen from stabilized leachate generated from the Sahom anaerobic landfill site.
As the fish eat the feed, 25% of amount nitrogen is assimilated from the feed for the biomass production whereas the rest is released as ammoniacal nitrogen (N[H.
Trout farming requires waters of an excellent quality, in which suspended solids do not exceed 10 mg/l, total ammoniacal nitrogen of less than 1 mg/l, ammonia below 0.
2] additive content, it was because the increase of additive content resulted in the decrease of C/N ratio and when it went low, there was less C available for consumption, whereas N nutrients were relatively excess, causing a part of N to transform into ammoniacal N and have their volatilization losses.
With the start of the aerobic phase, the dissolved oxygen content increases gradually in the biological suspension, and the decay of ammoniacal nitrogen by the nitrification process is verified, which leads to the formation of nitrite and nitrate ions in the mixed liquor.
