    Modelling the Methodology for Crude Oil Bioremediation Decision Tree for an Integrated Environmental Management System
    Author(s): Ukpaka CPUkpaka CP

    The application of Matrix Laboratory (MATLAB) computer programme language was used in the simulation approach to determine the best methodology for crude oil bioremediation using the concepts of decision tree mechanism with an integrated environmental management system to achieve high efficiency at end of the cleanup. Bioremediation is a process in which microorganisms metabolize contaminants either through oxidative or reductive processes. Under favorable conditions, microorganisms can oxidatively degrade organic contaminants completely into non-toxic byproducts such as carbon dioxide and water or organic acids and methane. The area, volume, concentration of the soil, concentration of the liquid (crude oil) and the film mass transfer coefficients influence the effectiveness of bioremediation process. To obtain the parameters, ?max, KS, K1 and yx numerical solutions of these equations we.. View More»
