I would greatly appreciate if someone could tell me the approximative  
concentration of EDTA showing a bactericidal activity against different 
environmental isolates.

Please, answer by email.

EDTA is an antimicrobial enhancer, not an antimicrobial by its self.  See
my forthcoming book from Marcel Dekker entitled:  _Preservative-Free and
Self-Preserving Cosmetic and Drug Products_  eds. Kabara and Orth.  I
usually add 0.1 % to the formula.
