I am doing a research science project on TNT-eating bacteria. I have heard of a project done by a group of scientists to get rid of TNT. They mixed molasses with the soil and TNT, causing the natural bacteria in the soil to multiply and eat the TNT. This got rid of all traces of TNT-- a natural cleanup. I need information on studies related to these for my paper. please help. Thank you.
