Comparative biodegradation examination of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (ATCC 27853) and other oil degraders on hydrocarbon contaminated soil.

Abstract

The soil that we investigated in our experiment was extremly high contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons. The sample was originated from a former truck factory, next to an oil tank. We tried on this sample three different biodegradation treatments in a soil respirometer. The aim of the experiment was investigate if the clinical strain Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 27853 is able to utilize petroleum hydrocarbons as carbon source. In spite of the relevant literature Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 27853 (clinical isolate, from blood) was proven to be a good oil degrader.
