Enrichment of a high rate tetrachloroethene dechlorinating culture: Role of electron donor
A high rate tetrachloroethene (PCE) dechlorinating culture was enriched under methanogenic conditions that was able to dechlorinate 86 mg/L PCE to cis-1,2-DCE and vinyl chloride within 15 hours. In subsequent studies, the ...
Effects of hydrocarbon sorption on biodegradation, emulsification capacity and microbial diversity of a mixed microbial population
The presence of an adsorbent resin in broth/resin slurries exerted a selection pressure on a population of microorganisms isolated from gasoline contaminated soil. The resin acted as a non-degradable matrix to sorb and ...
The behavior of TNT in model chemical redox systems and the fate of TNT reduction products in aerobic microbial systems
When exposed to the Fenton oxidation process, approximately 25% of the initial TNT was mineralized and approximately 63% was converted to unknown soluble products. When exposed to Fe(0) under acidic conditions, TNT was ...
