Definition:The oxidation of ammonium (NH4) to nitrogen (N2) in the absence of oxygen, using nitrite (NO2) as the electron acceptor. It is suggested that hydroxylamine and ammonium are combined to yield hydrazine, which is subsequently oxidized to N2.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: anammox
 broad_synonym: anaerobic ammonium oxidation
