A simple consortium consisted of two members of Klebsiella sp. A1 and Comamonas sp. A2 was isolated from the sewage of a pesticide mill in China. One member of Klebsiella sp. A1 is a novel strain that could use atrazine as the sole carbon and nitrogen source. The consortium showed high atrazine-mineralizing efficiency and about 83.3% of 5 g l−1 atrazine… CONTINUE READING
