ABSTRACT
This paper presents the biodegradation process carried out in water samples. Aliphatic hydrocarbons were degraded in the presence of the emulsifier. Non-ionic surfactant was used as the emulsifier. Two bacteria strains from the Pseudononaceae family were used in this process. We used Solid-Phase Extraction and gas chromatography for qualitative and quantitative determination of the components of the biodegradation process.
