High Hydrocarbon Fraction In A Multiphase Airlift Bioreactor: Direct Interfacial Is The Predominant Mode Of Hydrocarbon Uptake By A Microbial Consortium

Crude oil and derivatives hydrocarbons are an indispensable raw material in present-day life. Therefore, oil and oil products are also quantitatively the main environmental pollutants worldwide. The environmental impact of insoluble contaminants in water and soil has become a priority of study for the scientific community. After the occurrence of an oil spill, conventional oil
