"Aromatoleum" is a genus of proteobacteria capable of microbial biodegradation of organic pollutants.

The strain EbN1 has not been described in detail, therefore, according to the International Code of Nomenclature of Bacteria, the name "Aromatoleum aromaticum" is not valid (cf.) and is officially it is referred to Azoarcus sp. EbN1 as it belongs to the Azoarcus/Thauera cluster. The discovery of the strain was published in 1995, and was subsequently referred to in the literature as "Aromatoleum aromaticum" and cited as "(Rabus, unpublished data)".
