    detrimental effects on the environment and the economy. Oil spills can potentially cost billions of dollars. There are multiple ways in which oil spills can be cleaned in a safe and cost efficient way. One way is bioremediation, which is the use of microorganisms to break down pollutants. Another effective way is chemical remediation, which is the use of chemicals to extract pollutants from an environment. In this paper, I will discuss the beneficial attributes of bioremediation and chemical remediation in the oil spill clean up process. Oil is one of the major pollutants in the environment, especially for ocean pollution. Barges, tankers,…

    Water is very important to the human body, but if it is contaminated, what is the replacement for water? In the city of Fruitvale, there was a leak in Strawberry Creek of No-Bug Pesticide. If No-Bug Pesticide gets to 5.0 ppb (parts per billion), the water is unable to drink. Therefore, I think that bioremediation is the best solution to clean up Strawberry Creek because it poses no health problems, you can fix conditions if they are improper, but the conditions are hard to get through. First…

    Enhanced bioremediation- (Gerrard et al. 1999) p.9) did not put to consideration that offshore bioremediation was realistic, however, technology might have more so temporarily. Though this happens to be a very expensive option that needs to a great extent a huge consumption of energy (122 GJ per m3 matched to the next highest option that is onshore treatment that needs 6.5 GJ per m3). Nevertheless, this method would operate only in the summer with a 5 years period for a 6,000 m3 pile and about…

    Siderophore enhances the mobility of metals and various types of metals such as Cd, Cu, Ni, Pb, Zn, and the actinides Th (IV), U (IV) and Pu (IV) are solubilized by siderophore (Schalk et al., 2011). These characteristics of siderophore are arises due to its ligand functionalities and with the help of this property siderophores may have a strong binding affinity or selectivity to metal other than Fe (Hernlem et al., 1999). Pseudomonas aeruginosa secrete the pyochelin siderophore and could…

    Additionally, bioremediation is the ability to use naturally occurring microbes to concentrate and digest contaminants present in water. These organisms include bacteria, fungi and algae, and they are able to convert the toxic species to water and other gases, such as carbon dioxide. Phytoremediation is additionally helpful in removing contaminated soil from water. It is cost effective and simple to put into practice. Bioremediation and phytoremediation are environmentally adaptable and…
