Abstract
The report addresses a number of aspects which deal with the occurrence and control of microbiological contamination in naval distillate fuel by assessing biocide efficacy and the consequences of biocide treatment. Laboratory-scale trials have been undertaken to evaluate the effect of biocides on ship-derived mixed microbial populations compared with pure Cladosporium resinae, and on mixtures of known species combined in various proportions. The question of stability of the microbial mat following biocide treatment was evaluated by comparison of the physical properties of treated and untreated interface mats of a ship-derived inoculum and of Cladosporium resinae.
