Oil Eating Bacteria used to Clean Up Oil Spill

Xinhua, the official news agency of China, reported that over 23 tons of oil-eating bacteria is being used to help clean up an oil spill in the Yellow Sea caused by a pipeline explosion and fire.

An estimated 1,500 tons of crude oil has spilled into the Yellow Sea near the northern port city of Dalian.

This is the first time China has made major use of biotechnology to solve an environmental pollution problem.

Beijing Micro-Cleaner Biotechnology, a Beijing-based biotechnology company provided the 23 tons of oil-eating bacteria.

The use of the oil-eating bacteria is a process known as bioremediation. Microorganisms break down toxic hydrocarbons present in crude oil into less harmful compounds.
