The toxicity of trichloroethene (TCE) likely restricts microbial activity in close vicinity of a TCE dense nonaqueous phase liquid (DNAPL). This study examined the distribution of a dechlorinating community in relation to the distance from a TCE DNAPL using a diffusion-cell set-up. Subcultures of the KB-1(™) culture dechlorinating TCE to cis-dichloroethene(More)
Microbial migration towards a trichloroethene (TCE) dense non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) could facilitate the bioaugmentation of TCE DNAPL source zones. This study characterized the motility of the Geobacter dechlorinators in a TCE to cis-dichloroethene dechlorinating KB-1(™) subculture. No chemotaxis towards or away from TCE was found using an agarose(More)
