The Effects of Nitrogen and Phosphorus Fertilizers on the Bioremediation of Oil
Division:Engineering & Computing Sciences / Environmental Innovation
City:Woodbridge, ON
School:St. Clare Catholic E.S.
Abstract:To test the stimulation of microorganizms utilized in bioremediation, additions of phosphorus and nitrogen were added to oil contaminated soils and water. The results indicated that an increased addition of nitrogen proved the most effective, while phosphorus and nitrogen mixtures were secondary. The supplements proved effective in increasing levels of bioremediation.
