Abstract

BIODEGRADATION OF PAHS BY CONSORTIUM MICROORGANISMS ISOLATED FROM OIL CONTAMINATED SOIL

Adnan H. Abbas*, Duha Bahaa Mohammed and Eman H. Abed

ABSTRACT

Different two isolates of microorganisms were isolated from oil contaminated soil (Baghdad/Al-Dora refinery site). Then these isolates were identified as Bacillus sp. and Aspergillus parasiticus according to their morphological characteristics. These isolates were tested for their ability to degrade naphthalene (500ppm) by methylene blue and naphthalene residue by HPLC, results revealed that naphthalene was degraded with the rate of degradation (70, 45 and 61)% and (75, 50 and 72)% when treated with (Bacillus sp., Aspergillus parasiticus and co-cultures of Bacillus sp.-Aspergillus parasiticus) respectively, after incubating in a shaker incubator 120rpm at 30Co for 8days.

Keywords: Naphthalene biodegradation, Bacillus, Aspergillus parasiticus.
