Biodenitrogenation of petroleum oil was investigated by a previously isolated carbazole-degrader Pseudomonas sp. XLDN4-9. In a tetradecane-aqueous phase system, biodegradation of carbazole was enhanced by the presence of n-tetradecane. And strain XLDN4-9 was capable of absorbing 95.2% of 2 g/L carbazole dissolved in diesel within 15 hours. Significant… CONTINUE READING
