A wide range of microorganisms degrade thiocyanates utilizing these compounds as energy, nitrogen or sulfur source. Two biochemical pathways are available for the degradation of thiocyanate. Due to the action of microorganisms, the required pass levels are achieved in prescribed tests for thiocyanate to allow a ready biodegradability classification. Readily biodegradable compounds can be treated in biological systems as demonstrated and will be degraded very rapidly in ecosystems. Environmental concentrations of thiocyanate are therefore significantly reduced by biodegradation.
