E. e. carbon tetrachloride), trichloroethylene (TCE), tetrachloroethylene or perchloroethylene (PCE) and chlorobenzenes. Highly halogenated aliphatic hydrocarbons generally degrade faster under anaerobic conditions than molecules with only one or two chlorine atoms. For some pollutants such as perchloroethylene, with four chlorine atoms, it has actually not been possible to prove any aerobic biodegradation so far, while PCE is well biodegraded under anaerobic conditions [19]. Anaerobic biodegradation of chlorinated aliphatic compounds usually follows successive dechlorination steps, with gradual replacement of a chlorine atom by hydrogen.

4 Conclusions The most common air pollutants are particulate matter, carbon monoxide, ammonia, nitrogen oxides, sulphur oxides, and volatile organic compounds. They are emitted from either stationary sources or mobile sources. Carbon monoxide is, by far, the most abundant air pollutant, and it is mainly released during combustion processes. Bioprocesses are not suitable for dealing with particulate matter pollution, although several other efficient, nonbiological alternatives are available. All other pollutants can be eliminated biologically or through other physical and chemical techniques.
