ABSTRACT

The oil industry in the development of its activities, is at risk various types of accidents and incidents that adversely affect the environment; by example the oil spill occurred in the swamp adjacent to the former flow station SBEF-1 located in El Tejero, Monagas State, which resulted in the contamination of soil and water present in the area. There are rules and regulations under Venezuelan law like Decree 2635, which regulates the management of hazardous waste product of the activities oil, and sets as bioremediation process to comply with these rules. The work presented here shows an alternative to correct damage caused to the environment, organic biofertilizer evaluating a product to treat soils contaminated with hydrocarbons, through the study of parameters such as oils and fats, total hydrocarbons, pH, electrical conductivity, moisture and respirometry, determining a effective dose range to use 20-25% V/V BROSPLUS product and highlighting operational advantages over other techniques for bioremediation of soils such as the relatively short time of about six weeks to leave waste within the standard set; economic aspect highlights the low cost of treating 38,000 AU $/L for bioremediate 1 cubic meter of soil, ensuring that the resulting disposal of treated material in an environmentally friendly manner.
