- ... This study aimed to elucidate some kinetic aspects involved during the degradation of waste scrap tyre by a Bacillus sp. previously isolated. After a 5-day cultivation, 2.03 ± 0.22% and 0.005 ± 0.001% of weight loss were observed for tyre sample and control group, respectively. The potential organic compounds leached out from tyre, identified by GC-MS, mainly consisted of n-alkanes and some alkyla ...
