  • Abstract

    Aim: The ability of Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains of hydrocarbon degradation by producing biosurfactant has been investigated. Methods: The water samples were collected from reservoir receiving soybean oil waste and detected for the presence of P. aeruginosa  by 16S rRNA having potential of biosurfactant production when tested by oil spreading and emulsification assays. These isolates also recorded for the hydrocarbon degradation when tested by the COD reduction. Results and Discussion: The water bodies receiving heavy load of soybean oil was found to be positive for the several strains of P. aeruginosa capable of degrading hydrocarbon due to production of biosurfactant with different inherent capabilities. Conclusion: Isolated P. aeruginosa strains were found to be capable of degrading hydrocarbon due to overproduction of biosurfactant when tested in lab conditions.
