NITROAROMATIC COMPOUNDS – CHARACTERISTICS AND METHODS OF BIODEGRADATION

information regarding their proprieties, synthesis and sources as well as pathways of microbial aerobic or anaerobic degradation are described. In some cases microorganisms have evolved several pathways of degradation specific nitrocompound, for instance nitrobenzene, which we describe in detail. The second part of the publication focuses on environmental bioremediation of nitrocompounds.

Natural Attenuation Potential of Polychlorinated Biphenyl-Polluted Marine Sediments

The marine environment in Kuwait is polluted with various hazardous chemicals of industrial origin. These include petroleum hydrocarbons, halogenated compounds and heavy metals. Bioremediation with dedicated microorganisms can be effectively applied for reclamation of the polluted marine sediments. However, information on the autochthonous microbes and their ecophysiology is largely lacking. We analyzed sediments from Shuwaikh harbor to detect polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and total

efficacy. The hydrocarbon decomposing bacteria, which are available commercially in freeze-dried forms, propagate to at least 2 × 108 colony forming unit per milliliter (CFU/ml) and they are considered suitable for bioremediation (Thapa et al. 2012). Some of these bacteria with capability of degrading petrol components are: Flavobacterium spp., Rhodococcus spp., Serratia spp., Pseudomonas putida HM346961, Dietzia spp., Alcaligenes spp., Nocardia spp., Micrococcus spp., Burkholderia spp., Pseudomonas

Characterization of Microbial Communities in Acidified, Sulfur Containing Soils

Ureolytic activity, detected in soil extracts as well as in isolated Bacillus sp. strains may be considered as a tool for the bioremediation of acidified soils with high sulfate content.

ENDOPHYTIC BACTERIA IN THE PHYTODEGRADATION OF PERSISTENT ORGANIC POLLUTANTS

with TNT. For the first time, these studies demonstrated that the endophytic bacterium Stenotrophomonas chelatiphagus isolated from the leaves and Variovorax ginsengisola strain isolated from the sycamore maple leaf can transform TNT into hydroxylamine and amino dinitrotoluene. Currently, many studies focus on the possibility of using endophytic methanotrophs in the bioremediation of greenhouse gases, in particular methane and carbon dioxide. These bacteria contribute to the efficient capture of

CRESOLS AND THE MICROORGANISMS OF THE SOIL ENVIRONMENT

bring about changes in the structure of their cell membranes, resulting in their growth inhibition and cell lysis. However, there is still an untapped bioremediation potential in microorganisms, which are able to participate in the catabolism of cresols, both under aerobic and anaerobic conditions. The typical strategies of the aerobic degradation of cresols include the use of monooxygenase and dioxygenase enzymes. Thanks to these enzymes, atoms of molecular oxygen initiate fission of the aromatic

application values for micro-polluted water treatment (Su et al. 2015). Notably, some oligotrophic denitrifiers were isolated from copiotrophic environments. The oligotrophic denitrifiers from the topsoil of agricultural field sand played a significant role in denitrification (Hashimoto et al. 2006). Lee et al. (2011) had successfully used oligotrophic nitrifiers in the bioremediation of over-fertilized land. The highly relative abundance of these bacteria has been reported in a study of wastewater

The Emergence of Different Functionally Equivalent PAH Degrading Microbial Communities from a Single Soil in Liquid PAH Enrichment Cultures and Soil Microcosms Receiving PAHs with and without Bioaugmentation

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAHs) are common soil contaminants of concern due to their toxicity toward plants, animals and microorganisms. The use of indigenous or added microbes (bioaugmentation) is commonly used for bioremediation of PAHs. In this work, the biodegradation rates and changes in the bacterial community structure were evaluated. The enrichment culture was useful for unambiguously identifying members of the soil bacterial community associated with PAH degradation and yielded

Bioreactors operated with immobilized fungal cells have shown enhanced productivity, and permit expanded process strength and resistance to shock loadings in comparison to free fungal cells for decolorization of dyes (Hao et al. 2000). The reported potential of mycobiota of rhizospheric soil for bioremediation and ecological effect of azo dyes envisaged the current study to isolate fungal species and to evaluate their ability to develop an efficient system for removal of hazardous and toxic recalcitrants
