Abstract

THE USE OF CHLORELLA SP FOR BIOREMEDIATION OF DIESEL OIL SPILLAGE

Chioma Nwakanma* and Eneh Pamella I.

ABSTRACT

The use of Chlorella specie for bioremediation of diesel oil spillage was carried out in the study using gravimetric analysis. From the study, experimental setup C Group 4 showed more growth and degradation than the others. The Chlorella sp. degraded a maximum of 33.3% diesel oil after 30days of incubation. This was followed by 32% in experimental setup B Group 2 after 25days and 28.7% in experimental setup A Group 2. These results demonstrated that with conditions that enhanced degradation capacity, Chlorella sp. could be effective in biodegradation of diesel oil spill. It was conducted to support or reject the predictions of the literature study. It was discovered that the physical, chemical and biological composition of the oil contaminated water play an important role in influencing oil spill bioremediation.

Keywords: Oil pollution, Bioremediation, Algae, Gravimetric analysis, Biodegradation.
