    Genetically-manipulated microorganisms and their products in the oil service industries A. M. Chakrabarty Aerobic microorganisms belonging to various genera can oxidize a variety of hydrocarbons present in crude oil and use crude or heavy oil as a sole source of carbon and . This book is a treatise on microbial ecotoxicology, discussing the effect of pollutants on microbial ecosystems and the role of microorganisms in ecosystems services. Emphasizing the microbial responses to pollution at different biological levels, it focuses on metabolic pathways, genetic adaptation and response at the whole-microbial community.

    Microorganisms can be successfully used for the commercial production of many of the vitamins e.g. thiamine, riboflavin, pyridoxine, folic acid, pantothenic acid, biotin, vitamin B 12, ascorbic acid, P-carotene (pro-vitamin A), ergosterol (pro-vitamin D).However, from economic point of view, it is feasible to produce vitamin B 12, riboflavin, ascorbic acid and p-carotene by microorganisms. Microorganisms are very diverse and their jobs are highly specific in the environment. Recognizing the numerous invaluable functions of microbes, this book chapter give the information about the environment and role of microbes in various applications like biomass degradation, fuel production, mineral recovery and nutrient recycling.

Petroleum microbiology is a branch of microbiology that deals with the study of microorganisms that can metabolize or alter crude or refined petroleum microorganisms, also called hydrocarbonoclastic microorganisms, can degrade hydrocarbons and, include a wide distribution of bacteria, methanogenic archaea, and some all hydrocarbonoclasic microbes depend on.

Microorganisms in Sustainable Agriculture and Biotechnology. Editors Includes aspects such as role of microbes in enhanced oil recovery and mango wines; see more benefits This review of recent developments in our understanding of the role of microbes in sustainable agriculture and biotechnology covers a research area with enormous.

The ever-rising global demand for energy and the issue of large volumes of unrecovered oil after primary and secondary oil production operations are driving the development and/or advancement of enhanced oil recovery (EOR) techniques. Conventional EOR processes include thermal, immiscible and miscible gas injection, chemical, and microbial enhanced oil recovery (MEOR), among by: 4.

Moreover, the role of rhizobacteria and other soil associated microorganisms (such as Mycorrhizal fungi) has been depicted in crop biofortification through enhanced acquisition of micronutrients.

Abstract. Among different types of enhanced oil recovery (EOR) methods, gas injection, or more specifically and commonly, CO 2 injection, has been much in practice with the average recovery factor of 7%–23% over the globe. The large availability, low cost, and easily achieved miscibility condition are the main advantages of CO 2 injection over the other sources of gases.

Microbial-enhanced oil recovery (MEOR) is the use of microorganisms to increase the recovery of oil from existing oil reservoirs. There are nearly US patents dealing with MEOR, some of which add microorganisms to nearly depleted oil reservoirs while others rely on the indigenous by: 2.

Microorganisms have played a role for shaping the earth and making it more fit for habitation of higher forms of life. enhanced oil recovery using microbes and their products, metal extraction. Chemical Enhanced Oil Recovery (cEOR) processes comprise a number of techniques which modify the rock/fluid properties in order to mobilize the remaining oil.

Among these, surfactant flooding is one of the most used and well-known processes; it is mainly used to decrease the interfacial energy between the phases and thus lowering the residual oil by: 1.

The most spectacular quantities of petrogenic PAHs entering marine ecosystems are from oil spills such as the infamous examples of the Exxon Valdez in Alaska, the first Gulf War in Kuwait, the Erika in France, the Prestige in Spain and the more recent accident of the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico.

Oil spills are considered as acute hydrocarbon pollution, with the aromatic component Cited by:   SARDAR HUSSAIN ASST PROF BIOTECHNOLOGY GSC CTA 1 1 Biological recovery of oil spills and Role OF ganisms in biodegradation of xenobiotics Introduction An oil spill is the release of a liquid petroleum hydrocarbon into the off shore and on shore environment due to human activity and is a form of serious pollution.

They can be used as emulsifiers, de-emulsifiers, wetting agents, spreading agents, foaming agents, functional food ingredients and detergents.

Various experiments at laboratory scale on sand-pack columns and field trials have successfully indicated effectiveness of biosurfactants in microbial enhanced oil recovery (MEOR).Cited by: Microorganisms are known to be natural oil producers in their cellular compartments.

Microorganisms that accumulate more than 20% w/w of lipids on a cell dry weight basis are considered as oleaginous microorganisms. These are capable of synthesizing vast majority of fatty acids from short hydrocarbonated chain (C6) to long hydrocarbonated chain (C36), which may be saturated (SFA.

Biodegradation is defined as the biologically catalyzed reduction in complexity of chemical compounds [ 1 ]. Indeed, biodegradation is the process by which organic substances are broken down into smaller compounds by living microbial organisms [ 2 ].

When biodegradation is complete, the process is called "mineralization". However, in most cases Cited by: Microorganisms make up about 70% of the marine biomass. A microorganism, or microbe, is a microscopic organism too small to be recognised adequately with the naked eye.

In practice, that includes organism smaller than about mm.: 13 Such organisms can be single-celled or rganisms are diverse and include all bacteria and archaea, most protists including Marine microorganisms: Viruses, Prokaryotes. @article{osti_, title = {Role of Bioreactors in Microbial Biomass and Energy Conversion}, author = {Zhang, Liang and Zhang, Biao and Zhu, Xun and Chang, Haixing and Ou, Shawn and Wang, HONG}, abstractNote = {Bioenergy is the world’s largest contributor to the renewable and sustainable energy sector, and it plays a significant role in various energy industries.

This chapter discusses the methods used to characterize the microbial populations in oil reservoirs, to detect and control their detrimental activities such as souring and corrosion, and to stimulate their beneficial activities such as improved oil recovery. To be effective for enhanced oil recovery (EOR), the biosurfactant must reduce the interfacial tension between oil and brine by several Cited by: And the chlorofluorocarbons, better known as CFCs, are inert in automobile air conditioners and home refrigerators but come apart under ultraviolet bombardment in the mid-stratosphere with devastating effect on the earth's stratospheric ozone layer.
