CandidatusAccumulibacterphosphatis

http://microbewiki.kenyon.edu/index.php/Candidatus_Accumulibacter_Phosphatis

CandidatusAccumulibacterphosphatis removes large amounts of phosphate from waters and stores it as polyphosphate; as such this microbe is useful in phosphate bioremediation and sequestration.
