- ... This study investigated the impacts of thiosulfate (S2O3²⁻) as well as chemically synthesized and biogenic elemental sulfur (S⁰) on the rates of sulfur-based denitrification in batch bioassays. The use of S2O3²⁻ resulted in the highest denitrification rate (52.5mg N-NO3⁻/L d), whereas up to 10 times slower nitrate (NO3⁻) removal was observed with S⁰. Biogenic S⁰ was tested for the first time as el ...
