Abstract : A study has been undertaken to identify the microbiological and environmental factors which influence the formation of hydrogen sulfide in oily-water wastes in ships of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). In particular, methods were developed for isolation and enumeration of sulfate-reducing bacteria which produce the hydrogen sulfide in the waste. These methods were then used to find the important environmental features which contribute to the growth and metabolism of these bacteria.
