Methane gas was produced from a laboratory, granular activated carbon, anaerobic filter treating a synthetically prepared mixture of polycyclic N-aromatic compounds. The biodegradability of the individual polycyclic N-aromatic compound present in the mixture was investigated. Experimental results obtained from test bottles containing methanogenic enrichment cultures suggested that indole was degraded to methane and carbon dioxide under strict anaerobic conditions.
