Leaching experiments with Pb- and Zn-resistant pseudomonads demonstrated that Pb and Zn were leached from spent lubricating oil into water under both aerobic and anaerobic conditions. Leaching of the metal from oil was more efficient into seawater than into fresh water. Differences in the leaching dynamics of Pb and Zn suggest different mechanisms for these two metals. Chromatographic data indicate that a portion of both the Pb and Zn leached into seawater is present as an organo-metal complex.
