Experimenting with microbial degradation
of petroleum


Petroleum based pollutants are widely distributed and have polluted many oceans, soils and underground waters. Because of long term health and environmental hazards that such pollutants can produce, many scientists are studying methods of removing or destroying such pollutants.

 Project description:
In this project you study the effect of microbes in degradation and break down of petroleum products. You may also measure the rate of such effects on different petroleum products.
