Title Anaerobic Biodegradation of RDX and TCE: Single- and Dual-Contaminant Batch Tests
Creator Young, Travis S. M. Morley, Matthew C. Snow, Daniel D
Description Several sites in the United States have groundwater contaminated with mixtures of high explosives and chlorinated solvents. This research examined the ability of two microbial cultures (anaerobic sludge and a facultative enrichment culture) to biodegrade single- and dual-contaminant mixtures of trichloroethene (TCE) and hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX) under anaerobic conditions. In single component batch tests, both cultures degraded 0.6–1 mg RDX/L and its nitroso metabolites to...
