Chlorate contamination of groundwater is a big problem that is often associated with the manufacture and use of explosives and munitions. To clean up chlorate-contaminated areas, some researchers turn to bacteria that can break down these compounds. These microbes can produce oxygen in anaerobic conditions, which can speed up the process of breaking down other compounds that do not degrade quickly in anaerobic environments such as the hydrocarbon benzene. Adding chlorate-reducing bacteria to contaminated, oxygen-poor environments could therefore encourage the growth of other bacteria that need oxygen to break down other compounds found at these sites. Alicycliphilus denitrificans (strain DSM 14773 / CIP 107495 / K601) is an aerobic, Gram-negative bacterium isolated from a facultative aerobic sewage sludge. A. denitrificans is able to degrade benzene coupled to chlorate reduction. (Adapted from: and PMID 7386037).
