  • Bioremediation of an Oil Spill

    Bioremediation is the method of choice to effectively clean up a small spill of hydrocarbons. In this case, five-hundred liters of BTEX has spilled from an above ground storage tank into a pasture that is located at the west edge of the Royal Roads University (RRU) grounds. The soil is classified as a Gleyed Eutric Brunisol based on recent laboratory analysis; it contains clay, but is fairly ...

  • Bioremediation of DNAPL

    Dense non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) are mixtures of organic compounds that when combined have a specific density greater than water, which has a specific density of 1.00. They sink through water and form a separate liquid phase below the water. DNAPL mixtures can include compounds such as chlorinated solvents, PCB oils, coal tars, and creosotes (complex mixtures consisting of polycyclic ...

  • Bioremediation of fuel oil spill at a coastal naval air station in the united kingdom

    Introduction Approximately 1000 gallons of fuel oil had seeped from broken storage tank lines into the soil matrix beneath a boiler house. Oil was subsequently forced from beneath the boiler building by periodic heavy rainfall. The fuel oil migrated down a slope into a farmer"s field causing extensive damage to the vegetation and grazing area inhabited by sheep. ...

  • The Bioremediation Process

    Bioremediation allows natural processes to clean up harmful chemicals in the environment. Microscopic 'bugs' or microbes that live in soil and groundwater like to eat certain harmful chemicals, such as those found in gasoline and oil spills. When microbes completely digest these chemicals, they change them into water and harmless gases such as carbon dioxide. In order for microbes to clean up ...


  • Bioremediation With The Activated Peat Moss Product In A Savanna Soil Affected By Spilled Petroleum

    The preservation of environment is fundamental in order to get a self sustainable development, by keeping a harmonic relationship between oil exploration and environmental equilibrium. This is a necessary condition in order to share the oil production with other economic activities like agriculture and cattle production. In reality, the oil production is the most important factor in the national ...

  • Types of bioremediation and their modes of action

    An Urgent Call for Change in U.S. Oil Spill Response With Bioremediation Agent Type EA* bearing out as a workable first response alternative to the use of chemical dispersants, contrasting evidence has become even clearer that dispersant use has been a huge failure. Dispersants have proven to be an inadequate response method with more and more studies showing an ...

  • 99% of Interceptor contamination remediated - Case study

    What is an Interceptor Tank? An interceptor tank is a trap used to filter out hydrocarbon pollutants from rainwater runoff. It is typically used in road construction and on petrol station forecourts to prevent fuel contamination of the water table via runoff. Petrol interceptors work on the premise that some hydrocarbons such as petrol and diesel float on the ...

  • Petrol and heating oil bioremediation using EU70 (case study)

    As a result of an accident a tanker lost its load of petrol and heating fuel. A large quantity of fuel approximately 2000 litres soaked into the soil. Analyses revealed that the average level of hydrocarbons present was in the order of 0.55 %. The pollution affected an area of 100 m2 and to a depth of 0.6 m. Our goal was to reduce hydrocarbon levels to the lowest possible value in order to ...

  • Inland oil spill clean up case study

    Introduction The essential strategy for inland spill clean up techniques should be containment, recovery and temporary storage. Secondary needs will include transportation and possible disposal - or recycling. It is important to discover the source of the spill which might not be straight forward. A steady slow seepage from a leaking disused oil storage tank may be very difficult ...

  • Offshore oil spill clean up case study

    In the event of a major incident occurring offshore, for example a tanker casualty running aground or breaking up for any reason, it is of paramount importance to deploy emergency response to protect and save human life. Once this has been done an assessment of the casualty should be made on whether it is possible to salvage the vessel and its contents and to assess the type and amount of oil ...

  • Spill Cleanup of Fuel Contaminated Soils After Roadway Accidents Using In Situ Bioremediation

    Two case studies are presented in this paper, one study demonstrating revitalization of roadside vegetation through bioremediation after a spill of motor oil and in another case application of AgroRemed to sites affected by diesel spill with underlying utility cables. The TPH of the soil after bioremediation was reduced by more than 95% from 65,000 ppm in the first case while in the second case, ...

  • Nanobite bioremediates a Contaminated harbour - Case study

    When a hydrocarbon is spilled on water, it is very visible – floating on the surface, a blue green sheen clearly visible. When applied to an oil spill on water, Nanobite Liquid will not mix with the water and become diluted. Within a minute it attaches to the hydrocarbon, bonding with it and creating a matrix – an agglomerated gel- that remains on the surface and cannot sink, no ...
