• Using Microalgae for Remediation of Crude Petroleum Oil‐Water Emulsions

    21 days ago - By Wiley

    ABSTRACT
    Crude petroleum oil spills are among the most important organic contaminations. While the separated oils accumulated on the surface water are relatively easy removed, the emulsified portions are more difficult to remove and pose significant threats to the environment. Bioremediation using bacteria has proven to be an effective method, but the biomass produced in this case does not have any significant remunerative value. In this work, microalgae were proposed to combine emulsified oil remediation process with the potential of microalgae as a biofuel feedstock, thus enhancing the...
