The Effects of Aerobic Pseudomonades on Diesel Contaminated Soil by using Bioremediation
Division:Earth & Environmental Sciences
Region:Greater Vancouver
City:West Vancouver, BC
School:Collingwood School
Abstract:I tested bioremediation - naturally occurring aerobic bacteria eating at carbon chains to decontaminate them. Each week for a month I tested the decreasing extractable petroleum hydrocarbon (EPH) levels in three samples with different concentrations of diesel. Over four weeks, the samples decreased 68-74 percent in EPH levels.
