Aerobic Degradation of Di- and Trichlorobenzenes by Two Bacteria isolated from Polluted Tropical Soils.
Two polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs)-degrading bacteria were isolated by traditional enrichment technique from electrical transformer fluid (Askarel)-contaminated soils in Lagos, Nigeria. They were classified and identified ...
Efficacy of Intervention Strategies for Bioremediation of Crude Oil in Polluted Soil Microcosm
Crude oil, though not manmade but largely manipulated by man to provide different oil-based products has become a major source of environmental pollution. This menace on land do contribute to the retardation of vegetation ...
Evidence of Aerobic Utilization of di-Ortho-Substituted Trichlorobiphenyls as Growth Substrates by Pseudomonas sp SA-6 and Ralstonia sp SA-4
Robust and effective bioremediation strategies have not yet been developed for polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB)-contaminated soils. This is in part a result of the fact that otho- or ortho- and para-substituted congeners, ...
Carbazole Degradation in the Soil Microcosm by Tropical Bacterial Strains
(Sociedade Brasileira de Microbiologia, 2015)
In a previous study, three bacterial strains isolated from tropical hydrocarbon-contaminated soils and phylogenetically identified as Achromobacter sp. strain SL1, Pseudomonas sp. strain SL4 and Microbacterium esteraromaticum ...
