  • New monitoring tools for petrol additive MTBE in groundwater

    Methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) is a petrol additive which can contaminate groundwater supplies. MTBE often breaks down naturally in the environment, but regulators need to be certain that this is taking place. New research highlights a number of tools in development that may offer better data on spilled MTBE in the environment, and improve the ability to monitor its degradation. MTBE is added ...

  • 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 ...
