  • Encouraging bacteria to clean up oil spills

    Catastrophic accidents account for 9 per cent of the oil released into marine environments. Several disasters, including the 1989 Exxon Valdez in Alaska, and the Prestige incident, off northern Spain in 2002, have seen the use of 'bioremediation' as part of the clean-up operation. Recent work has investigated combinations of natural additives to increase the speed and efficiency of ...

  • Using microbes to clean up oil spills

    Original story at MIT News Catherine Drennan, a professor of chemistry and biology, likes to wax poetic about the complex chemistry of microbes. "I think they’re elegant and beautiful," she says. Of course, she also sees their practical applications. "I love the fact that these microbes can be used for bioremediation in ...
