The objective of this research was to evaluate the effectiveness of the use of solid waste date (SWD) as a lowcost natural agro-industrial materials, in improving crude oil biodegradation in contaminated sea water. Two types of Libyan crude oil (heavy crude oil (HCO) and light crude oil (LCO)) were used in this study. Batch reactors with sea water were used as bioreactors. A central composite design (CCD) with response surface methodology (RSM) was applied to evaluate the relationship between… CONTINUE READING
