General Information: Aromatic hydrocarbon-degrading bacterium. First isolated from sediment contaminated with ethylbenzene, this organism is capable of growing on crude oil, using polar aromatic compounds such as benzoate under both oxic and anoxic conditions. It is currently being evaluated for use in aromatic hydrocarbon bioremediation projects. Aromatoleum aromaticum is capable of metabolizing various aromatic hydrocarbons, including toluene and ethylbenzene and may be of use in bioremediation.
