Abstract

One of the major environmental problems today is hydrocarbon contamination resulting from accidental oil spills & petrochemical industrial effluents. Exposure to such hazardous components lead to various adverse effects on aquatic & terrestrial ecosystems. Many of these compounds and their derivatives have carcinogenic, mutagenic & cytotoxic properties etc. Conventional methods to reduce levels of contamination has proved to be quite ineffective. Many indigenous microorganisms in water and soil are capable of degrading hydrocarbon contaminants. Bioremediation is the promising technology for the treatment of this contamination. In this study, an attempt is being made to assess the ability of bacterial isolates to degrade hydrocarbon (kerosene & petrol) and also studying the effect of magnetic field on rate of degradation. The isolates obtained from a grease sample showed the ability to tolerate 5%v/v of kerosene & petrol, and the rate and percentage of degradation in kerosene was measured using gravimetric method. Biochemical tests indicate that the obtained isolates may belong to Pseudomonas, Burkholderia, Neisseria sp. Further, two of the isolates showed increased rate of degradation under magnetic fields of 50+20 gauss.
