Successful bioremediation of hydrocarbon contamination in terrestrial as well as aquatic ecosystems is generally limited by the low bioavailability of hydrophobic pollutants. Considerably higher mass transfer rates and hydrocarbon solubilities can be obtained at higher temperatures, but so far approaches to bioremediation at increased temperature have hardly been investigated. The biotechnological significance and the benefits of the use of thermophilic bacteria in enhancing hydrocarbon removal… CONTINUE READING
