Oil: It's What's For Dinner

ST. PETERSBURG - C-IMAGE scientists want to know more about how oil-eating microorganisms behave in the cold deep ocean to learn more about what happened to the oil from the Deepwater Horizon blowout.  High pressure experiments underway at our high pressure facility at the Hamburg University of Technology focus on how these microbes use oil and what happens to them in the process.  Results from these studies may lead to a new way to clean up spills by eliminating its most poisonous ingredients.  For more information, download C-IMAGE's Podcast 6.
