History and ecology of chloroethene biodegradation: a review.
For a more thorough discussion and review of chloroethene biodegradation, see Bradley (2003), Holliger (1995), Janssen et al.
Most reducing equivalents from the electron donor (glucose) were consumed in reductive dechlorination, probably due to the inhibition of other microbial processes by the high chloroethene concentrations.
Archaea are also commonly reported as a part of microbial communities dechlorinating chloroethenes (Table 2).
Chloroethenes (CEs) such as tetrachloroethene (PCE) and trichloroethene (TCE) have been used extensively in dry cleaning and as degreasing agents.
