Abstract

The aim of this research was to improve the bioremediation technology for soils that are polluted with crude oil through biostimulation, bioaugmentation and phytoremediation. The soil artificial polluted with crude oil have been treated with a natural biodegradable product and bacterial inoculum. The plant used in the greenhouse experiment is maize. In this paper is presented the influence of different treatments on plant biomass. It will be shown the influence of crude oil on plant growth (plant number/pot, plant length, leaves number and plant biomass) in a soil treated with a natural biodegradable product and inoculated with bacterial inoculum. According with the results obtained, this method could be used in field for rehabilitation and reuse in agriculture of polluted soils with crude oil.
