Abstract
A series of papers presented at the Biotechnology Forum workshop on oil spills in the marine environment in 1990 were contained in this publication. The primary focus of these reports was the use of biological cleanup techniques following oil spills. The problems of oils spills in general was discussed and the Exxon Valdez spill that occurred in 1989 was described. Five reports were presented examining the human and environmental costs of oil spills. These dealt with the Environmental Protection Agency's bioremediation project in Alaska, the effect of regulations on the cleanup of spills, the environmental and economic impact of the Valdez oil spill, the carcinogenic effects of oil, gasoline, and their components, food safety issues, and an assessment of the level of human exposures to oil. Three reports on techniques used to clean up oil spills were included along with five reports dealing specifically with the use of biological efforts to clean up toxic spills. The last four reports examined the application of biological clean up techniques to the Exxon Valdez oil spill.
