- ... The elimination of potentially pathogenic bacteria in wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) attracts much attention in public health. Reports on the occurrence of the emerging hospital pathogen Acinetobacter baumannii in wastewaters do not include a continuous monitoring at all WWTP stages.

- ... In a karst pit above City of Rijeka in Croatia the hazardous industrial waste was continuously disposed from 1955 to 1990, and later it was periodically used as an illegal dump site. The surface part of a technosol at the edge of dump was analysed mineralogically, geochemically and bacteriologically. From the technosol rich in petroleum hydrocarbons and heavy metals three isolates of Acinetobacter ...
