 A methanogenic mixed culture enriched from Saale river sediment was able to transform all chlorobenzenes by reductive dechlorination via monochlorobenzene to unsubstituted benzene after a short lag phase of only 1 week. The formation of benzene was confirmed by GC/MS in pentane extracts of the sludge samples, as well as in the headspace gas of the batch cultures. The spectra of substrate utilization of the adapted cultures depended mainly on the substrates used for adaptation. Sediment… CONTINUE READING
