We investigated the effect of increasing CO(2) concentrations on the growth and viability of ecophysiologically different microorganisms to obtain information for a leakage scenario of CO(2) into shallow aquifers related to the capture and storage of CO(2) in deep geological sections. CO(2) concentrations in the gas phase varied between atmospheric conditions and 80% CO(2) for the aerobic strains Pseudomonas putida F1 and Bacillus subtilis 168 and up to 100% CO(2) for the anaerobic strains Thauera aromatica K172 and Desulfovibrio vulgaris Hildenborough. Increased CO(2) concentrations caused prolonged lag-phases, and reduced growth rates and cell yields; the extent of this effect was proportional to the CO(2) concentration. Additional experiments with increasing CO(2) concentrations and increasing pressure (1-5000 kPa) simulated situations occurring in deep CO(2) storage sites. Living cell numbers decreased significantly within 24 h at pressures ≥1000 kPa, demonstrating a severe lethal effect for the combination of high pressure and CO(2).
