Abstract

A strain of that could utilize methyl chloride as the sole carbon and energy source for growth was isolated from industrial sewage. The methylotroph utilized methyl chloride quantitatively with stoichiometric release of chloride ion. A specific growth rate (μ) of 0·09 h was observed with about 1% (v/v) methyl chloride in the gas phase.
