A dechlorinating consortium (designated as TES-1 culture) able to convert trichloroethene (TCE) to ethene was established from TCE-contaminated groundwater. This culture had the ability of complete dechlorination of TCE within about one month. From the clone library analysis of 16S rRNA gene, this culture was mainly composed of fermentation bacteria, such as Clostridium spp., and Desulfitobacterium spp. known as facultative dechlorinator. PCR using specific primers for Dehalococcoides spp. and… CONTINUE READING
