Aerobic biodegradation of vinyl chloride in groundwater samples






Applied and Environmental Microbiology 56(12): 3878-3880

Aerobic biodegradation of vinyl chloride in groundwater samples

Studies were conducted to examine the biodegradation of 14C-labeled vinyl chloride in samples taken from a shallow aquifer. Under aerobic conditions, vinyl chloride was readily degraded, with greater than 99% of the labeled material being degraded after 108 days and approximately 65% being mineralized to 14CO2.
