Biologists of Moscow State University to develop Rosneft's a drug that can decompose oil

At the biological faculty of Moscow State University within the framework of the agreement with Rosneft, which was signed this year, scientists began the development of microbial preparation, which is capable of at low temperatures, including negative, to decompose oil and oil products in the waters of seas, coastlines, surfaces of ships and platforms.

Biologists of Moscow State University to develop Rosneft's a drug that can decompose oil
In 2014, the Russian biologists of Moscow State University started working on a "related" topic: as a result, they were able to identify over 100 strains of psychrophilic microorganisms.

The development of new technological forms are needed to create a hydrophobic surface, inside it is placed a drug on the basis of microorganisms. The shell dissolves only in case if you start to contact with the hydrocarbon fraction. Thus, scientists want to ensure that target delivery of the drug was carried out in a place that is dirty, which will significantly improve the efficiency of its use. Psychrophilic microorganisms that are part of a biological product can absorb oil, decomposing it into carbon dioxide, water, and biomass of bacteria themselves.
Biologists of Moscow state University will test a new drug in natural conditions.

Earlier the largest Russian biologists of the University have developed methods for stepwise selection of microorganisms that have the highest activity of oil fractions that allowed the selection of suitable strains (they has been patented and deposited in all-Russian Collection of Industrial Microorganisms).
