Petrochemical hydrocarbons are considered to be the most significant environmental pollutants and need to be removed. In present study, the biodegradation of used engine oil and diesel oil was achieved under shake flask conditions using an efficient bacterial consortium A2457: comprising bacterial strains of Stenotrophomonas maltophilia, Bacillus cereus and Bacillus pumilus. The strains were isolated and screened by enrichment technique. The bacterial strains were identified on the basis of 16S… CONTINUE READING
