Biodegradation of volatile chlorinated hydrocarbons

Biodegradation of volatile chlorinated hydrocarbons

DECHEMA biotechnology conferences Lectures held at the 7th DECHEMA annual meeting of biotechnologists, Frankfurt am Main, Germany, 30-31 May 1989: 909-912

In a screening programme using specialized methods, different bacterial cultures were isolated from contaminated sites which could degrade volatile chlorinated hydrocarbons (CHC). Pure cultures were found for the mineralization of dichloromethane, 1,2-dichloroethane and cis-1,2-dichloroethylene. 1,1-dichloroethane, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, chloroform, carbon tetrachloride, vinyl chloride, tri- and tetrachloroethylene were degraded by several mixed cultures.
