AIMS To study the desulphurization of dibenzothiophene (DBT), a recalcitrant thiophenic component of fossil fuels, by two bacteria namely Rhodococcus sp. and Arthrobacter sulfureus isolated from oil-contaminated soil/sludge in order to use them for reducing the sulphur content of diesel oil in compliance with environmental regulations. METHODS AND RESULTS The desulphurization pathway of DBT by the two bacteria was determined by gas chromatography (GC) and GC-mass spectrometry. Both organisms… CONTINUE READING
