Biochemical Treatment of Drill Cuttings: A non conventional and an Environment-Friendly Approach
Contribution to knowledge:
This study investigated a biochemical treatment approach involving the use of micro-organisms and chemical enhancers to biologically reduce drill-cuttings into residues that pose no threats to the environment. Results showed that micro- organisms in combination with chemical enhancers can be employed as an effective, efficient and environment friendly remediation strategy in drill-cuttings treatment in the Niger Delta.
