A novel 2D strain that could effectively degrade di-n-butylphthalate (DBP) and its major metabolite, phthalic acid (PA), was isolated from compost and identified as Providencia sp. 2D. A complete degradation of DBP (200 mg L−1) was observed within 3 days under optimal conditions obtained by response surface methodology. This strain 2D could utilize various(More)
Soil pollution with organic contaminants is one of the most intractable environmental problems today, posing serious threats to humans and the environment. Innovative strategies for remediating organic-contaminated soils are critically needed. Phytoremediation, based on the synergistic actions of plants and their associated microorganisms, has been(More)
