The Potential Use of Chicken-Drop Micro-Organisms for Oil Spill Remediation
An examination of chicken-drop micro-organisms for oil spill remediation is presented in this work. The chicken droppings contained aerobic heterotrophs (1.2×108 CFU g−1), total fungi (3.4×104 CFUExpand
Removal of Nigerian light crude oil in soil over a 12-month period
The results indicate that the quantity of crude oil spilled in soil and the age of the contamination influence the rate and total extent of disappearance of the oil in the environment. Expand
Microbiological, Nutritional, and Sensory Quality of Bread Produced from Wheat and Potato Flour Blends
The use of hydrated potato flour in bread making is advantageous due to increased nutritional value, higher bread yield, and reduced rate of staling. Expand
The antimicrobial activities of methanolic extracts of Eucalyptus camaldulensis and Terminalia catappa against some pathogenic microorganisms
The results obtained suggest that T. catappa and E. camaldulensis can be used in treating diseases caused by the test organisms. Expand
Biodegradation of crude oil by bacillus strains 28A and 61B isolated from oil spilled soil
Abstract Bacteria capable of degrading Nigerian light crude oil, transniger pipeline crude, were isolated from Ebubu oil-spilled soil of Rivers State, Nigeria. Crude oil degradation was measured byExpand
Production and partial characterization of biosurfactant produced by crude oil degrading bacteria
The biosurfactant can be used in EOR under various environmental conditions and revealed that Serratia marcescens had the highest emulsification index. Expand
Studies on relative capabilities of bacterial and yeast isolates from tropical soil in degrading crude oil
The relative capabilities of two bacterial isolates Serratia marcescens OCS-21 and Acinetobacter calcoaceticus COU-27 from Ebubu oil polluted soil of Rivers State, Nigeria and a yeast isolate,Expand
Microbial population and biochemical changes during production of protein-enriched fufu
The results of this study suggest that fufu can be made more nutritious with yeasts particularly Candida utilis strain BKT4 and Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain B KT7. Expand
Study on Biosurfactant Production by Two Bacillus Species
Investigation of the ability of Bacillus sphaericus EN3 and Bacillus azotoformans EN16 to produce large quantities of biosurfactants and determine a suitable substrate for its production revealed that the surfactants produced by both organisms were principally phospholipids. Expand
Bacterial Assessment and Quality Analysis of Raw Milk Sold in Gwagwalada Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja, Nigeria
Analysis of raw milk from four different local farmers within Gwagwalada Area Council (FCT) Abuja, revealed that treatment T 3 is better in terms of bacteria load than others (T 1, T 2 and T 4 ). Expand
