Abstract

The yeast Scharomycopsis lipolytica was grown in seawater with Ekofisk oil as the carbon source, and the pH was kept constant by the automatic addition of NaOH. The experiments were performed at 8°C and 20°C respectively. In addition, the yeast was grown at 20°C without pH control. The results indicated that the end products of biodegradation were similar in the experiments, and that the oil was dispersed thorugh the microbial activity.
