Abstract

The feasibility of using the White-rot fungi Bjerkandera for bioremediation of polluted soil through polyaromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) biodegradation was investigated. Following laboratory experiments which demonstrated large increase in PAH degradation with increase in bioavailability by the addition of surfactants, bench-scale experiments with real contaminated soil were conducted, achieving PAH degradation in soil with up to 70% PAH removal in real aged soil pollution.
