GLASGOW, Scotland - A type of bacteria accidentally discovered could fundamentally re-shape efforts to cut the huge amount of electricity consumed during wastewater clean-up, according to researchers.

Other research groups have also detected it in wastewater treatment plants, in groundwater and even in aquaculture systems. Click here to read the full article at waterworld.com.
