  Abstract The influence of irradiance on the nitrifying activity in photobioreactors of a bacterial consortium enriched from a wastewater treatment bioreactor was assessed using independent ammonium oxidation kinetic batch tests and respirometric assays. Culture irradiance below 250 μmol m(-2) s(-1) did not show a significant effect on nitrification activity, while irradiance at 500 and 1250 μmol m(-2) s(-1) caused a decrease of 20 and 60% in the specific total ammonium nitrogen removal rates and a reduction of 26 and 71% in the specific NO3- production rates, respectively. However, no significant influence of irradiance on the affinity constant of NH4+ oxidation was observed. The increasing nitrite accumulation at higher light intensities suggested a higher light sensitivity of nitrite oxidizers. Additionally, NH4+ oxidation respirometric assays showed a decrease in the oxygen uptake of 14 and 50% at 500 and 1250 μmol m(-2) s(-1), respectively. The experimental determination of the light extinction coefficient (lambda) of the nitrifying bacterial consortium (lambda = 0.0003 m(2) g(-1)) and of Chlorella sorokiniana (lambda = 0.1045 m(2) g(-1)) allowed the estimation of light penetration in algal-bacterial high rate algal ponds, which showed that photo inhibition of nitrifying bacteria can be significantly mitigated in the presence of high density microalgal cultures. 2016 Elsevier Ltd.
