Disappearing Oil:Enhanced Bioremediation of Oil-Contaminated Soil in Bioreactors
Division:Engineering & Computing Sciences / Environmental Innovation
City:Woodbridge, ON
School:St. Joseph's Morrow Park C.S.S.
Abstract:To effectively reduce the oil concentrations in highly contaminated soil, lab scale bioreactors were constructed containing varying amounts of oxygen, phosphorus, and nitrogen, as well as acclimated soil bacteria. Environmental factors were controlled and a method of oil quantification was employed. A tremendous reduction in contaminant concentration and the presence of microbial mats denoted the effectiveness of enhanced bioremediation in ex-situ bioreactors.
