Forming media conditions for hydrocarbon biodegradation

О. Л. Матвєєва, О. Р. Алієва

Abstract


Mechanical, physical and chemical approaches to cleaning up the environment from oil pollution is too expensive and not effective enough. A process of biological treatment – bioremediation has a great potential and competitive advantage in comparison with other methods due to its environmental safety, cost-effectiveness and high rate of contamination decomposition. However, the effectiveness of bioremediation is usually limited by abiotic factors. A role of oil-destructive microorganisms in biological treatment of oil pollution is characterized, and approaches to improve the efficiency of bioremediation through formation of proper conditions in biodegradation media are described.

Keywords
