Sample text

In the atmosphere, nitrogen mainly exists as dinitrogen gas (N2 ), where it constitutes about 78% of the atmosphere. Nitrogen is fixed by bacteria in primary production and is liberated as ammonium in the biological food chain (Ncycle). Part of the ammonium is returned to primary production and the bacterial processes of nitrification and denitrification recycle the surplus to the atmosphere as N2 . NO As The elimination of inorganic nitrogen compounds plays an important role in wastewater treatment, because these compounds contribute significantly to the eutrophication of aquatic environments and are toxic to fish.
