Oil residues containing high molecular mass hydrocarbons, rich in polyaromatic compounds, are frequent end-products of crude oil processing and are poorly biodegradable. Their disposal poses an environmental problem. Through batch-enrichments from contaminated soils we have isolated and characterized seven bacterial strains that can use a residue from crude oil processing as a source of carbon and energy. The residue was a complex mixture of high molecular mass compounds, including saturated… CONTINUE READING
