Bp deepwater horizon oil spill bioremediation

The Deepwater Horizon oil spill added roughly 800 million liters of hydrocarbons to the Gulf of Mexico. One quarter of that has been burned, captured or skimmed, according to U.S. government estimates. That leaves the rest for trillions of microbes to feast on—a petroleum cornucopia The short-term and long-term impact of this oil spill are significant, and the Deepwater Horizon spill is potentially both an economic and an ecological disaster. Microbes present in the water column and sediments have the potential to degrade the oil. Oil degradation could be enhanced by biostimulation method. As the straw biodegrades, it also produces CO2, allowing bacterial growth on the mycelia and mushrooms, further degrading the hydrocarbons
  • Conclusion
    The Deepwater Horizon oil spill is the largest accidental marine oil spill in the history.
    It has employed Bioremediation as part of its cleanup efforts which has shown to be effective and has several benefits.
    Benefits include lower cost and reducing environmental impacts, creating a better, cleaner

The BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill was more than an order of magnitude greater in total volume of oil than the Exxon Valdez spill; the BP spill also released considerable amounts of natural gas (methane (CH 4 )). The Exxon Valdez spill occurred near shore and occurred as a surface slick, The Deepwater Horizon oil spill added roughly 800 million liters of hydrocarbons to the Gulf of Mexico.

Due to the magnitude of this event and environmental and political damage it caused, a significant scientific effort has been made to study its effect on ocean and coastal ecosystems. In many expansive oil spills, such as the Exxon Valdez or BP Deepwater Horizon incidents, substantial effects were seen when petroleum was released into those marine ecosystems.
