Biodegradation of Chlorinated Ethenes at a Karst Site in Middle Tennessee. CHLORINATED-ETHENE BIODEGRADATION PROCESSES. Microbial organisms use a wide variety of metabolic processes to generate energy and maintain cellular growth.

These processes involve the transfer of electrons from an electron donor (food source) to an electron acceptor. Get this from a library. Biodegradation of chlorinated ethenes at a karst site in middle Tennessee.

25, p. This report presents results of field and laboratory investigations examining the biodegradation of chlorinated ethenes in a karst aquifer contaminated with trichloroethylene (TCE).

The study site, located in Middle Tennessee, was selected because of the presence of TCE degradation byproducts in the karst aquifer and available site hydrologic and chlorinated-ethene information.

2 Biodegradation of Chlorinated Ethenes at a Karst Site in Middle Tennessee ). The guidelines for evaluating sites contami-nated with chlorinated solvents incorporate hydrogeol-ogy, microbiology, and geochemistry, and ground-water modeling.

A large component of those guide-lines is for evaluating if significant biodegradation is taking place. Biodegradation of Chlorinated Ethenes at a Karst Site in Middle Tennessee STUDY SITE. The site used in this study is a manufacturing facility located on 65 ha in Marshall County, in Middle Tennessee ().The manufacturing facility has been in operation since and is currently used to assemble air conditioning and heating equipment.

Pferdeort et al. () observed changes in Biodegradation of chlorinated compounds- a review. Crit Rev. This paper describes one of the first well-documented field examples of natural attenuation of trichloroethylene (TCE) in groundwater in a fractured shale bedrock.

The study was carried out adjacent to a former waste burial site in Waste Area Grouping 5 (WAG5) on the Oak Ridge Reservation, Oak Ridge, TN. A contaminant plume containing TCE and its daughter products were detected.

Natural attenuation of TCE and chlorinated solvents has been shown to occur in granular aquifer materials Dojka et al.,Chapelle et al.,Kleopfer et al.,Clement et al.,but only a few studies have examined natural attenuation in fractured rock Yager et al.,Mobarry et al., or karst (Byl and Williams,   TBA biodegradation in surface-water sediments under aerobic and anaerobic conditions.

Concentrations of O 2, NO 3- and SO 4 2- values of δ 37 Cl DOCl in groundwater, and the lack of less-chlorinated ethenes in groundwater and stream water indicated that anaerobic biodegradation of TCE was unlikely. Losses of TCE along Little.

Total chlorinated ethenes were stable at ± μM until when they rapidly decreased, suggesting VC was being converted to ethene and thus complete reductive dechlorination was occurring. We were unable to calculate the VC degradation rate because degradation was so rapid that insufficient data were collected.
