Uranium Interaction with Two Multi-Resistant Environmental Bacteria: Cupriavidus metallidurans CH34 and Rhodopseudomonas palustris
We describe in the present article the ability of C. metallidurans CH34, highly resistant to metals and metalloids, as well as R. palustris, highly resistant to organic pollutants, to withstand and immobilize U. Thanks to their multi-resistance they could be used for the bioremediation of polluted areas containing both U and other pollutants. C. metallidurans CH34 cells, both at pH 7 (live) and at pH 1 (dead) immobilize U(VI)-citrate by biosorption as a mixture of U(VI)-phosphate and U(VI)-carboxylate. R. palustris immobilizes U(VI)-carboxylate by bioreduction either as U(IV)-phosphate (pH 7) or as U(IV)-carboxylate (pH 1). Future work will aim at enhancing their U sequestration capacity, by modulating exposure pH and the composition of exposure media in order to find optimal physico-chemical conditions for U accumulation and/or adsorption on bacterial wall.
Bioremediation of Chlorobenzoic Acids
Also phototrophic bacteria capable of reductive dehalogenation of CBAs are known, e. g. Rhodopseudomonas palustris DCP3 , strain able to degrade under anaerobic conditions 2-CBA; 3-CBA; 4-CBA and 3,4-CBA. This strain is also capable of anaerobic degration of benzoic acid.

EM Fermenterad kompost/ Bokashi ger 27 gånger mindre utsläpp av klimatgaser
Making Bokashi compared to Traditional Composting, results in:
• Lower nutrient losses
• Considerable lower emissions of greenhouse gasses (CO2, CH4, NO2)
• Per unit of end-product, a 27 times lower carbon footprint
• Less labour required because it does not need to be mixed regularly
