AbstractIn this study, the feasibility of using a mineralization test under coupled aerobic/anaerobic conditions was demonstrated. The coupling of anaerobic methanogenic and aerobic methanotrophic conditions in a microcosm required the presence of both a carbon source for anaerobic metabolism and oxygen for aerobic metabolism. These requirements were fulfilled by using a slow hydrolyzing organic matter along with intermittent addition of oxygen to the bottle headspace. Perchloroethylene (PCE) mineralization tests confirmed the effectiveness of the proposed methodology as well as PCE mineralization under coupled conditions.
