Metabolism of chlorinated methanes, ethanes, and ethylenes by a mixed bacterial culture growing on methane

Abstract

Soil was taken from the top 10 cm of a soil column that removed halogenated aliphatic hydrocarbons in the presence of natural gas. This soil was used as an enrichment inoculum to determine that the removals seen in the soil column were in fact of a microbiological nature. Methane served as the source of carbon and energy and was consumed immediately by the… (More)
