LOmg/1) The efficiency of the GBH system is governed by the activity of two groups of microorganisms: the heterotrophic bacteria, which oxidise organic matter and release ammonia; and the autotrophic nitrifying bacteria which oxidise ammonia to nitrite and nitrate. Both groups consume oxygen but the faster metabohc rate of the heterotrophs means that they are mainly responsible for the biochemical oxygen demand of the system. Indeed, the supply of oxygen to this group can limit the rate of organic matter breakdown during sewage treatment.
