Abstract : This report summarizes achievements gained during my visit in USA between 12 March and 20 May 1992. The main purpose was to exchange information in a field of bioremediation and industrial wastes biodegradation. To fulfill this objective, I presented a seminar about bioremediation in Czechoslovakia and worked in AFCESA laboratory on characterization of strain Pseudomonas fluorescens which was used in bioremediation projects in CSFR. In addition, I was allowed to visit the following laboratories and bioremediation sites: Gulf Breeze EPA laboratory, Hill AFB and an AFB in Alaska. Subsequent visit at University of Idaho (Department of Bacteriology, R. Crawford laboratory) was partly allowed so experiences there are also included in this report. This report is divided into two parts. First, one summarized laboratory methods of screening and testing of microorganisms and results of work on testing of the Pseudomonas fluorescens strain CCM 4427. Second one is a brief review of knowledge about bioventing.
