Identification of novel denitrifying bacteria Stenotrophomonas sp. ZZ15 and Oceanimonas sp. YC13 and application for removal of nitrate from industrial wastewater

Two novel denitrifying bacteria were successfully isolated from industrial wastewater and soil samples. Using morphological, biochemical/biophysical and 16S rRNA gene analyses, these two bacteria were identified as Stenotrophomonas sp. ZZ15 and Oceanimonas sp. YC13, respectively. Both of these two bacteria showed efficient NO3 −-N removing abilities under a semi-anaerobic condition without obvious accumulation of NO2 −-N, N2O-N and NH4 +-N. NO3 −-N removal from paper mill wastewater was also successful by treatments with either a denitrifier or an immobilization method. Therefore, this study provides valuable denitrifying bacteria in biotreatment of industrial wastewater and other environmental pollution caused by NO3 −/NO2 −.
