Application of micronucleus test and comet assay to evaluate BTEX biodegradation
(Chemosphere, 2013-01-01) [Artigo]
The BTEX (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylene) mixture is an environmental pollutant that has a high potential to contaminate water resources, especially groundwater. The bioremediation process by microorganisms has ...
Aerobic biodegradation of butanol and diesel oil blends
(African Journal of Biotechnology, 2010-10-18) [Artigo]
This work aimed to evaluate the aerobic biodegradation of butanol/diesel oil blends (5, 10, 15, 20%, v/v) in comparison to the biodiesel/diesel oil blend (20%, v/v). Respirometric experiments simulating the contamination ...
Biodegradation of biodiesel/diesel blends by Candida viswanathii
(African Journal of Biotechnology, 2009-06-17) [Artigo]
This work is aimed to assess the aerobic biodegradation of biodiesel/diesel blends (0, 2, 5, 20 and 100%, v/v) by Candida viswanathii. The biodegradation potential of the inoculum was assessed with the redox indicator ...
