Dispersants are an essential tool for responding to marine oil spills: by reducing the interfacial tension between oil and water, they allow even very small breaking wavelets to disperse a treated.

These microbes will reduce, oxidize, ferment, and demobilize the constituents of oil spills over time, and create innocuous compounds. Bioremediation techniques involve using these mechanisms to reduce pollutant amounts and are dependent on pollutant aspects: Ex situ bioremediation.

@article{osti_, title = {Bacteria and bioremediation of marine oil spills}, author = {Atlas, R.M.}, abstractNote = {Virtually all marine ecosystems harbor indigenous hydrocarbon-degrading bacteria. These hydrocarbon degraders comprise less than one percent of the bacterial community in unpolluted environments, but generally increase to one to ten percent following petroleum contamination.

The problems associated with using bioreme. bioremediation and its practicality. Research, as well as actual applications to marine oil spills, has shown that bioremediation has many advantages and great potential for many different oil spill cases, however there are also disadvantages, making bioremediation not.

Bioremediation of Oil Spills. Marine bacteria capable of degrading oil exist throughout the world’s oceans. The vast majority are aerobic.

Some of these break down the hydrocarbons in oil to smaller subunits; others, such as Alcanivorax borkumensis, produce surfactants that solubilize the oil (making it soluble in water).
