A microbial culture enriched from a trichloroethene-contaminated groundwater aquifer reductively dechlorinated trichloroethene (TCE) and tetrachloroethene (PCE) to ethene. Initial PCE dechlorination rate studies indicated a first-order dependence with respect to substrate at low PCE concentrations, and a zero-order dependence at high concentrations.
