- ... Bioremediation processes have been credited for reducing high levels of organic contaminants from soils. However, during the bioremediation of soils contaminated with diesel, the conversion of heavy molecules to volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and greenhouse gases (GHGs) and the volatilization of light molecules can occur. The ongoing construction of a large petrochemical complex in Rio de Janei ...

- ... Petroleum hydrocarbons are among the most important contaminants in aquatic ecosystems, but the effects of different petroleum components on the archaeal communities in these environments are still poorly investigated. Therefore, the effects of representative alkanes, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and crude oil on archaeal communities from marine (Massambaba Beach) and hypersaline waters (Verme ...
