Description

Ferric iron (Fe(III)) reducer 3. Cells are straight or slightly curved rod-shaped bacteria, that occur singly or in short chains of 2-4 cells 3. They are strictly anaerobic chemoorganotrophs that oxidize organic acids with Fe(III) as electron acceptor 3. Nothing is known of the genus' importance in activated sludge.
