Biodegradation processes could be efficient for such organic contaminants like o-xylene within sewage. Since the biodegradation processes is mainly controlled by microbial communities therefore, this research paper intended that the bioaugmentation process application might speed up or improve biodegradation process in Rustumihia plant. It delivers an initial knowledge of the effects of one of the most complicated organic contaminants at Rustumihia plant. In addition to that, it suggested the using of indigenous microbial communities that is isolated from the treatment plant within the application of bioaugmentation. It reveals findings on the ecology of o-xylene degradation via using bacterial communities that were already enriched and isolated from the four important treatment phases of Iraq's Rustumihia plant.
