Abstract Assemblages of anaerobic sulphidogenic microorganisms were isolated from soil polluted by oil-derived products and grown using the microcosms method. The cultures were grown in minimal and Postgate media with phosphogypsum (PG) as the sole electron acceptor and with lactate, casein or lactose as the sole carbon source. The most effective was the assemblage in Postgate medium with lactose as the sole carbon source. A reduction of 980 mg COD l −1 (reduction of about 40%) and 790 mg SO 4… CONTINUE READING
