The following strains were isolated and all found capable of utilising 2
-butoxyethanol as a carbon source:
Source (all in Germany)
Forest soil, Stuttgart
Biotrickling filter, Stuttgart
Activated sludge, Stuttgart
In a study to examine how widely distributed are bacteria capable of
utilising ethanol as a source of carbon, all 11 bacterial strains
sourced from four different bacterial colonies (two
biofilter/bioscrubbers that can be considered adapted sources) and
forest soil and activated sludge that can be considered non-adapted)
were found capable of degrading the substance. It can be concluded that
the bacteria capable of degrading ethanol are widespread.
