Candidatus Accumulibacter is an unclassified group of Betaproteobacteria that currently contains only a single member, Candidatus Accumulibacter Phosphatis. C. Accumulibacter phosphatis is a common bacterial community member of wastewater treatment plants performing enhanced biological phosphorus removal and is a polyphosphate-accumulating organism. There are currently no cultured representatives, however due to the importance of C. Accumulibacter phosphatis in the biotechnology industry there has been much research into the physiology of these bacteria.
