Enrichment cultures on naphtha solvent were used to select aromatic hydrocarbon-degrading bacteria from a BTEX (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylene)-contaminated subsoil obtained from beneath a paint factory located in Milan, Italy. Fifteen isolated strains were studied for their different biodegradative capacities. Among these, 13 were able to grow on naphtha solvent. Ten were identified as Pseudomonas putida and three as Pseudomonas aureofaciens. Two other degraders were identified as… CONTINUE READING
