Forty two strains of bacteria were isolated from excess activated sludge from petroleum wastewater treatment plant. The strains were identified and classified to the following groups: Enterobacteriaceae (7 strains), Anitratum (3 strains), Pseudomonas (13 strains), Micrococcus (12 strains), Comamonas (2 strains), Xanthomonas (2 strains), Achromobacter (1(More)
The paper presents the efficiency of phenol removal (concentrations from 500 to 2000 mg/l) by fungi isolated from activated sludge purifying wastewater with high phenol concentration. Five fungal strains were isolated and identified. All isolated strains appeared to be Moniliales from the class of Fungi Imperfecti (Candida sp., Monosporium sp., Trichosporon(More)
The possibility of using mineral oils as a carbon source by bacteria adapted to high oil concentrations was tested in liquid media with different pH values (pH = 5, 7 and 9). Two types of inocula were tested: inoculum I consisted of selected strains used in the bioremediation of oil-contaminated soils and inoculum II contained bacteria isolated from soil(More)
Several strains growing well in minimal media with 500 and 1000 mg/l of oil or phenol as a sole carbon source were isolated from activated sludge purifying petroleum waste waters and identified. Five of the best growing strains classified as Arthrobacter, Pseudomonas, Xanthomonas and Enterobacter were selected and their capacity to remove petroleum(More)
The ability of four strains of bacteria derived from a biological petroleum-refining wastewater purification plant to carry out the biodegradation of phenol was studied. Two of the strains belonging to the genus Pseudomonas were found to be characterised by high effectiveness of the removal of phenol which was used as sole carbon and energy source (the(More)
Survival of Escherichia coli O157:H7 strain isolated from milk in Poland and an environmental E. coli strain in wastewater from Garwolin and Łowicz dairies and in activated sludges from dairy sewage treatment plants as well as in dairy wastewater with activated sludges was examined. Environmental materials were contaminated with about 10(8) of target(More)
Eighteen strains of bacteria were isolated from activated sludge purifying petroleum-refining wastewaters. These strains were plated on solidified mineral medium supplemented with oil fraction in concentration 1000 mg/l. Four of the strains that grew best in the presence of oil were selected for further studies. The strains were identified based on Bonde's(More)
The studies focused on the effect of the addition of low concentrations of glucose - a substrate that is readily subject to microbiological degradation, on the rate of biodegradation of petroleum products. Glucose in concentration 1% was introduced into mineral medium containing 3% crude oil, with or without bacterial inoculum. The rate of degradation of(More)
The biotransformation of phosphogypsum in cultures of sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) isolated from crude petroleum-refining wastewaters or purified using activated sludge method was studied. Selection was with the microcosms method on Postgate and minimal medium with different carbon sources, Emerson medium and petroleum-refining wastewaters. Highest(More)
