Soil bioremediation contaminated by polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons from mountain microorganisms

Project Details


"the soils and water sources have been affected by the different industrial activities, causing harmful effects on the flora, fauna and microorganisms, among these sources are the spills and / or spills of oil which have negatively impacted the soil and therefore, the growth of the plants, as well as the existence and survival of the animals that feed on addition, there may also be an affectation in the social field that includes the production systems, health, economy and lifestyles of populations, due to the effects of these compounds, which, such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are toxic to humans (mutagenic and carcinogenic) (judith cavazos-arroyo & al., 2014).


Evaluate the effectiveness of mountain microorganisms in the hydrocarbon bioremediation process in order to have a sustainable soil remediation alternative.
