“Eat up that oil”

Oil Eating Microbes

ON May 17, 2010 the Texas Land Office and Texas Water Commission successfully used ‘oil eating’ microbes to clean up large oil spills on land or in the water in just weeks. Bacteria hunt down and eat the toxic oil and leave only a biodegradable waste that is non-toxic to humans and marine life.

Applied as a dry powder blend of stabilized bacterial spores and micro-nutrients formulated for use in the degradation of petroleum based hydrocarbons. Remediation of marshland and beaches were pristine again in just weeks. Could this help save the Gulf of Mexico?

The video shows a possible way to safely clean up and restore the oil-polluted ocean, wetlands and sea-shores back within weeks instead of years
