Hydrocarbons are the most efficient form hydrocarbons, due to the level of energy they produce. But the disadvantage of such effective hydrocarbons is pollution. Pollution is considered one of the most noticeable and intricate problems in the contemporary era. The widespread problem caused due to petroleum products is their discharge and accidental spillage in environment proving to be hazardous. Oil spills are a major concern these days, at industrial and developmental level. There are certain methods of clean ups like physical, chemical methods but they are really costly and skilled labor intensive. Biological method of clean-up has proved to be a good method for degradation of these PHCs. It is cost effective and eco-friendly.
