Isolation and Performance for Two Strains of Benzo[a]pyrene Degradation
This is the report describing the biodegradation of benzo[a]pyrene （BaP） by strains isolated from the soil of the PAH contaminated sites. Achromobacter sp and Alcaligenes sp were found with the capability of degrading Bap as sole carbon source, their biodegradation performance of BaP was evaluated when the initial BaP concentrations was approximately 0.25mg/L, 0.40mg/L and 0.90mg/L. The results demonstrated Alcaligenes sp could degrade Bap completely within two weeks when the initial Bap concentration was 0.40mg/L. Alcaligenes sp showed higher removal efficiency than Achromobacter sp.
