Benzo[a]pyrene is recognized as a potentially carcinogenic and mutagenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon, so the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has listed it as a priority contaminant for remediation, being priority the removal of this compound from the environment. The use of thermophilic bacteria capable of biodegrading this compound to simpler forms has been explored in recent decades as it provides advantages compared to mesophilic organisms.
