A study on the bioremediation potentials of the earthworm Hyperiodrilusafricanus (Beddard) in soil contaminated with crude oil was investigated. Dried and sieved soils were contaminated with 5 ml each of crude oil with replicates and inoculated with earthworms and monitored daily for 12 weeks. Physicochemical parameters such as pH, total organic carbon, sulfate, nitrate, phosphate, sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium were determined using standard procedures. Total petroleum hydrocarbon… 
Bioremediation of heavy metals and petroleum hydrocarbons in diesel contaminated soil with the earthworm: Eudrilus eugeniae
TLDR
The study has shown that E. eugeniae could be applied as a possible bioremediator in diesel polluted soil.
Bioremediation assessment, hematological, and biochemical responses of the earthworm (Allolobophora caliginosa) in soil contaminated with crude oil
TLDR
The earthworm Allolobophora caliginosa has been shown to be good bioremediator for oil-contaminated soils and also has potential as a bioindicator for contamination.
Vermiremediation of Crude Oil Contaminated Soil Using Eudrillus euginae and Lumbricus terrestris
The negative and cost implications of remediation of petroleum contaminated sites using physical and chemical techniques have necessitated the use of biological techniques like vermiremediation. In
Bioremediation of total petroleum hydrocarbons in crude oil contaminated soils obtained from southeast Anatolia
Oil spills are one of the most common types of soil pollution. Bioremediation is an attractive alternative method to physico-chemical remediation. It is well-known that bacteria and fungi are the
Bioremediation of soil contaminated by hydrocarbons with the combination of three technologies: bioaugmentation, phytoremediation, and vermiremediation
TLDR
The use of endogeic earthworms and plants species from the same contaminated field can be an efficient alternative for increasing hydrocarbon removal.
Bio-Enhancement of Petroleum Hydrocarbon Polluted Soil Using Newly Isolated Bacteria
ABSTRACT Despite the important role of petroleum hydrocarbons as energy resources, contamination of petroleum hydrocarbons and their products has caused significant harm to the environment, and hence
Effects of cadmium and lead on the biodegradation of diesel-contaminated soil
In this research, the soil samples were contaminated with 0.05% and 0.1% of cadmium and lead. Seventy pots containing 200 g of soil were polluted with 5% diesel (w/w) (10 g). The physicochemical

Crude Oil Hydrocarbon Bioremediation and Soil Ecotoxicity Assessment
In this study, we determined the limits and extent of hydrocarbon biodegradation, earthworm and plant toxicity, and waste leachability of crude oil-containing soils. Three oils (heavy, medium, and
Soil Bioremediation: Combination of Earthworms and Compost for the Ecological Remediation of a Hydrocarbon Polluted Soil
TLDR
Chemical, physico-chemical, biological and biochemical parameters were determined to study the soil metabolic processes in order to assess the efficiency of the bioremediation process involved in the degradation of hydrocarbons.
Effects of earthworm (Eisenia fetida) and wheat (Triticum aestivum) straw additions on selected properties of petroleum‐contaminated soils
TLDR
Findings that earthworm additions improved plant growth and that straw additions enhanced microbial activity in land-farm soil suggest that these treatments may be compatible with plant-based remediation techniques currently under evaluation in field trials, and could reduce the time required to restore soil ecosystem function.
