A novel strain (PYJ-1) of Rhodococcus pyridinovorans that was isolated from a biofilter was able to degrade styrene at a maximum rate of 0.16 mg (mg protein)(-1) h(-1) in batch culture at 97 mg l(-1) of initial styrene gas concentration. The optimum pH and temperature for styrene degradation were 7 and 32 degrees C, respectively. The degradation kinetic constants were obtained using substrate inhibition kinetics. In a perlite-packed biofilter the maximum styrene removal rate by the strain was… CONTINUE READING
