This study presents the proof-of-concept of the "Oil-Spill Snorkel": a novel bioelectrochemical approach to stimulate the oxidative biodegradation of petroleum hydrocarbons in sediments. The "Oil-Spill Snorkel" consists of a single conductive material (the snorkel) positioned suitably to create an electrochemical connection between the anoxic zone (the(More)
The direct molybdate method for the determination of inorganic phosphorus was adapted to the (Cobas) Bio centrifugal analyzer. We evaluated test characteristics such as reaction time, linearity range, accuracy and precision within series and from day to day. Accuracy was checked using control sera, three different types of recovery experiments, and by(More)
Bioremediation is an effective technology to tackle crude oil spill disasters, which takes advantage of the capacity of naturally occurring microorganisms to degrade petroleum hydrocarbons under a range of environmental conditions. The enzymatic process of breaking down oil is usually more rapid in the presence of oxygen. However, in contaminated sediments,(More)
