Utilização de grânulos de cortiça para estimular a biorremediação aeróbia de hidrocarbonetos

  • Mestrado Integrado em Engenharia Biológica, 2017


Oil spills are one of the worst environmental disasters caused by anthropogenic activities. Containment of the oil spills and removal of hydrocarbons using sorbent materials is one of the most used strategies for remediation of the contaminated sites. Cork has been applied with success as biosorbent in the remediation of oil spills. Due to its physical-chemical characteristics, cork may be a good support for the growth of hydrocarbonoclastic bacteria, or may have substances which stimulate their growth, promoting in situ bioremediation. This work intends to evaluate the aerobic degradation of ...
