Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH; naphthalene, anthracene and phenanthrene) degrading microbial consortium C2PL05 was obtained from a sandy soil chronically exposed to petroleum products, collected from a petrochemical complex in Puertollano (Ciudad Real, Spain). The consortium C2PL05 was highly efficient degrading completely naphthalene, phenanthrene(More)
The aim of this work was to determine the optimum values for the biodegradation process of six abiotic factors considered very influential in this process. The optimisation of a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (naphthalene, phenanthrene and anthra-cene) biodegradation process was carried out with a degrading bacterial consortium C2PL05. The optimised(More)
This study evaluates the ability of two bacterial consortia (C2PL05 and BOS08), extracted from very different environments, to degrade low- (naphthalene, phenanthrene, anthracene) and high- (pyrene, perylene) molecular-weight polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) at high (15-25 °C) and low (5-15 °C) temperature ranges. C2PL05 was isolated from a soil in(More)
The use of petroleum fractions by some microorganisms as a food source has been known for years. This property has been used for the bioremediation of hydrocarbon polluted soils. Nevertheless, microbial growth in hydrocarbons has become a serious problem for the oil industry since it has been observed inside fuel storage tanks. This causes problems such as(More)
