The complex of laboratory experiments on the activity of utilizing contaminant oil by strains of hydrocarbon-oxidizing microorganisms developed in VNIGRI is analyzed. Particular attention is given to a detailed chemical bitumen analysis of initial and bio-oxidized samples, allowing investigating of utilization of contaminant oil and its fractions (oils, neutral and acidic resins, asphaltenes, saturated and aromatic hydrocarbons). Use of integrated chemical bitumen analysis in extraction contributes to objectiveness in evaluation the effectiveness of biological products for utilizing oil pollution of soil.
Key words: oil, oil pollution, hydrocarbons, petroleum products, strains of hydrocarbon-oxidizing microorganisms, activity, bio-oxidation, chemical bitumen analysis.
