Abstract


The isolates have capability to degrade used engine oil was obtained from soil in the beach contaminated
with used engine oil. One of the selected isolates TBC 1.2 was identified by its 16s rDNA as Acinetobacter
junii. The microorganism can use hydrocarbons in used engine oil as the sole carbon source and energy, also
it significantly degraded almost all hydrocarbon compounds in used engine oil. With its ability Acinetobacter
junii TBC 1.2 has a potency to be utilized for bioremediation of soil polluted with used engine oil.

Keywords
