Abstract — Bioremediation of Marine Oil Spills — In the long run, biodegradation is the eventual fate of oil spilled at sea that cannot be collected or burnt.

Stimulating this biodegradation. In book: Introduction to Petroleum Biotechnology, pp The two general approaches that have been tested for the bioremediation of marine oil spills are the application of fertilizer to. @article{osti_, title = {Bacteria and bioremediation of marine oil spills}, author = {Atlas, R.M.}, abstractNote = {Virtually all marine ecosystems harbor indigenous hydrocarbon-degrading bacteria.

These hydrocarbon degraders comprise less than one percent of the bacterial community in unpolluted environments, but generally increase to one to ten percent following petroleum contamination.

Introduction. Since the early s, following the discovery that nutrient fertilizers could enhance the rates of oil biodegradation in marine environments (Atlas and Bartha, ; ; Bartha and Atlas, ), bioremediation has been a potential treatment for mitigating marine oil spills (Atlas, ; ; Swannell et al., ).As discussed by Swannell and colleagues (), the Exxon Cited by: In conclusion, bioremediation is not the panacea for mitigating oil spills-but it is an important tool in reducing the ecological impact of some oil spills.

Citation: Prince R, Atlas R. Bioremediation of Marine Oil Spills, p Cited by: In fact, bioremediation is often used to help clean up crude oil spills. Bioremediation of a contaminated site typically works in one of two ways: (1) methods are found to enhance the growth of whatever pollution-eating microbes might already be living at the contaminated site, and (2) specialized microbes are added to degrade the contaminants.

According to Dave and Ghaly (), mechanical treatment and dispersants application followed by bioremediation are the most effective treatments for a marine oil spill. accidental spills of fuel oil or other hydrocarbons.8 Much less progress has been made with respect to the practical problems of applying bioremediation technologies to marine oil spills, although advocates have suggested their use in the wake of several major spills.

Bioremediation in Marine Oil Spills, Edition Major incidents such as the Amoco Cadiz (France, ), the Exxon Valdez (USA, ), the Braer (UK, ), the Sea Empress (UK, ), the Erika (France, ) and the Prestige (Spain, ) have provided the stimulus for the development of alternative response techniques to tackle oil pollution both at sea and on the shoreline.

Currently, there are limited methods for cleaning up oil spill which have reached the shoreline or which have spread over a large area.

Some of these methods, like in situ burning or the use of dispersal agents, do a lot of harm themselves. bioremediation of oil spills 1. Bioremediation of oil spills Submitted by- Anchal Garg Environment Science 2.

Oil spills • Oil spills occur frequently throughout the world. There are both inland and oceanic spills. • Oil spills require quick action so that they cause as little damage as possible.

In a controlled experiment, students apply a suspension of oil-degrading microbes to a small amount of oil and chemical indicator in a culture tube. This paper will focus on the use of bioremediation for marine (surface water) oil spills.

Part II will briefly describe the development of bioremediation techniques. Part III will explain the biological and chemical processes of bioremediation, while Part IV will have a look at a few recent applications of this technique after major oil spills. As a consequence of the importance of oil spills relative to other sources of organic contaminants in the marine environment, there is a large body of research on oil-spill bioremediation.

Furthermore, studies of oiled shorelines have been far more numerous than open water studies, which have often been equivocal [ Cited by: Preface.

This book provides a clear and concise overview of the present level of knowledge and expertise in the field of oil spill response.

It covers the behaviour and fate of different types of oil when spilled and the effects on marine and coastal resources. Guidance is given on aerial surveillance, the at-sea measure of containment and recovery, and the use of chemical dispersants, and there are.
