The seawater-charcoal perfusion apparatus would be able to be applied for selecting microbes degrading other pollutants. Our laboratory was success to isolate microbes from sea water degrading other environmental pollutants such as 1,4-dioxane, toluene, and bisphenol A. These microbes will be able to be expecting to be applied for bioremediation, as well as we must appreciate they are keeping sustainable ocean environment out artificial pollutants.
