  • 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 ...

  • Exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons: first nationwide survey in Spain

    The BIOAMBIENT.ES project is the first human biomonitoring programme to estimate levels of environmental pollutants at national level in Spain. This study reports its findings on polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), chemicals that are ubiquitous in the environment. The results will help to establish reference values, identify highly exposed populations and evaluate effectiveness of policies. ...

  • Rhodococcus bacteria can help clean up fuel-contaminated sites

    Fuel spillages and leaks from petroleum storage facilities can lead to serious pollution of soils and underground water. In a recent study, two strains of Rhodococcus bacteria were found to be effective at degrading a number of petroleum hydrocarbons and thus helping clean up contaminated sites. Fuels can be significant pollutants of soils and groundwater, especially around fuel storage ...

  • Tersus Hosts Thought Leader Webinar Series

  • Landfill cover soil methane oxidation underestimated

    Landfilled waste decomposes in the absence of oxygen and results in the production of methane. Landfills are classified as the second-largest human-made source of CH4 in the U.S. Additionally, landfill gas contains numerous non-methane hydrocarbons that are either volatilized directly from waste materials or produced through biochemical reactions during waste degradation. Microbial methane ...

  • 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 ...
