Project: Introduction to a biodegradable micribiological association in soils.

project duration
31-DEC-99 – 31-DEC-99
Aim of the study is to gain more insight in the in situ biodegradation of PCB's.A microbial association with Alcaligenes eutrophus, capable of degrading completely 4-chlorobifenyl will be made. The influence of pollutantconcentration, texture and competition on the survival of the introduced strains will be assessed. The transfer of the catabolic plasmid from A. entrophus to other bacteria will be investigated.
