Biological Remediation of Hydrocarbon Contaminations
Our partner, a Hungarian Inc. has developed a new procedure for remediation of hydrocarbon contaminated soils. Different goups of hydrocarbons have dissimilar ways of biodegradation: For the guided biological degradation of the crude oil and its more complex derivatives complementary and assisting synergic effects of specific bacterial strains are necessary. Although the nutritive material of the crude-oil specific bacterium population is the oil compound itself, many other complementary substances and conditions are required for its optimal function. The aim of the research was to develop a brand new complex technology which is based on the following elements: - Developing the most effectively starter culture containing applicable microorganism composition by information concerning the pollution and the external and by collected samples. - Elaborating the remediation plan of the biotechnological phase and obtaining the necessary permissions of authorities. - Elaborating the measured designed plan and the monitoring system. - Producing the planned quantity of starter culture. - Ensuring professional direction and management to the application of bacteria, regular monitoring and adjustment of the biodegradation process. - Preparing the final evaluation document and providing microbiological post-monitoring of the remediation.
