ABSTRACT

The paper deals with an examination of possible application of biodegradation in the
decontamination of soil samples from international airport in Ostrava. The laboratory
biodegradation tests were carried out with a pure bacterial culture of Pseudomonas
putida
, a pure laboratory culture of Rhodococcus sp, their mixture and a mixture
prepared combining their media free of bacteria. The results of the paper imply that for
biodegradation of airport pollutants is most suitable to apply a mixed bacterial culture of
Pseudomonas putida and Rhodococcus sp. The results show that the biodegradation
method is applicable for the pollution.

Keywords: biodegradation, Pseudomonas putida, Rhodococcus sp., mixed culture
