  • Bioremediation to keep atrazine from waterways

    “When we added the enzyme to a holding dam filled with run-off contaminated with atrazine, more than 90 per cent of it was removed in less than four hours,” says CSIRO Entomology’s Dr Colin Scott. “Atrazine is a widely used and extremely useful herbicide but, depending on its use, can lead to residues that persist in water for sometime after application. Undesirable residues in water have led to ...

  • Aerobic cometabolism of tetrachloroethylene (PCE)

    Tetrachloroethylene (PCE) is a problem contaminant because of its widespread use, potential toxicity and persistence in the environment. Like other chlorinated solvents, remediation of PCE in soil and ground water has proven to be very difficult. While there has been has been widespread success under anaerobic conditions, the application of bioremediation under aerobic conditions has not been as ...

  • Iranian fungi show promise in cleaning up oil spills

    Iranian scientists have isolated local strains of fungi that can digest petroleum compounds and may be useful in cleaning up polluted sites, especially in similar, semi-arid areas. The researchers isolated fungal strains from oil-contaminated sites within the Arak refinery in Iran and found some of them to cut the amount of petroleum pollution in soil by more than half. Although ...

  • Los Angeles Tar Pits Hold Bacteria That Degrade Petroleum

    RIVERSIDE, California (ENS) – The Rancho La Brea tar pits in downtown Los Angeles house hundreds of new species of bacteria with unusual properties that allow the bacteria to survive and grow in heavy oil and natural asphalt, environmental scientists at UC Riverside have discovered. Trapped in soil that was mixed with heavy oil nearly 28,000 years ago, the bacteria are ...

  • Seasons influence microbial response to climate changes

    A warming climate and an increase in nitrogen to the soil from the atmosphere have demonstrated large effects on soil microbial activity and biomass. A new scientific study looks at these effects while taking into account seasonal variation. Their findings showed that warming and nitrogen increased microbial biomass, but the effects of nitrogen were only observed in the summer. This research ...

  • Oil spills could be cleaned up by bacteria from underground petroleum reserves

    Bacteria taken from underground petroleum reserves could be used to effectively break down crude oil from spills at sea, new research has found. The study measured the breakdown of crude oil components in simulated seawater by four bacterial strains that had been isolated from petroleum reservoirs, as well as by four genetically modified stains. The findings raise the possibility of tailor-making ...
