And if you can believe the scientific results of our small-scale application test, we’re on the verge of a major breakthrough. We have absolutely no evidence that there are any harmful side-effects from these microbes. It’s time for us involved in oil spill response to put bioremediation at the center of our oil spill contingency plans.” Texas Water Commissioner. Buck Wynne III, added, And when you look at the tools we presently have to work with–booms, skimmers, dispersants, and absorbents, bioremediation stand out above all of them. Because these naturally-occuring microorganisms appear to degrade significant quantities of oil in a startlingly short period of time and because we have yet to identify any harmful side-effects from the products used, I am persuaded that this technology can be developed and used as a valuable weapon to use in our arsenal to deal with future oil spills.”   Two weeks later a barge in Galveston Bay was struck and leaking oil, so bioremediation was tried. In just six weeks the microbes ate the oil and left the water and land pristine. Mauro commented, “I hope today’s symposium puts all Texas movers and receivers of oil on notice that at least the General Land Office, which manages the 4 million acres of submerged lands, expects bioremediation to be part of any oil spill contngency plan they have.”
