Title: Bioremediation of chlorinated solvents. (Latest citations from Pollution Abstracts). Published Search

The bibliography contains citations concerning biodegradation of halogenated hydrocarbons commonly used as industrial solvents. The microbial processes that destroy these contaminants or reduce their toxicity are discussed. Techniques include treatments used in above-ground reactors or in situ detoxification of contaminated soil or water. The citations examine conditions which facilitate decomposition, such as identification of the most effective microorganisms; and factors which can accelerate or inhibit the degradation.(Contains 50-250 citations and includes a subject term index and title list.)
