Cometabolism of 1,1,1-TCE in a Mixed Solvent Plume

One of the benefits of CL-Out cometabolism is that the enzymes produced by the Pseudomonas sp. organisms convert a wide range of organic chemicals into organic acids that can be metabolized.  The aggressive application of CL-Out organisms to soil and ground water at a chemical mixing company removed the source of ground water contamination by chloroethanes and chloroethenes,  including PCE and 1,1,1-TCA.  The aerobic cometabolism of these compounds simultaneously achieved MCLs in less than 6 months.  Click here to view the case study Mixed Solvent Plume Cometabolism by CL-Out
