Article Preview

In this study, the feasible condition for diesel oil degradation of EM was investigated in artificial seawater medium. Under the optimal growth and degradation condition of pH 8.0, 30°C, inoculation amount of 3%, substrate concentration of 0.5%, and NaCl concentration of 20 g/L, the n-alkanes of diesel oil was degraded in high efficiency with total degrading rate of 72.3%, and the average n-alkanes (C10- C21) removal could reach 74.8% within 15 days. The results indicated that EM could be used in the bioremediation of marine oil pollution.
