Assessing the toxicity of produced water using bacteria and invertebrate assay.

What is it about?

This study used the microtox (Vibrio fischeri) and invertebrate (Crassostrea gigas) BIOASSAY tool to evaluate the toxicity of discharged produced water in Delta State, Nigeria

Why is it important?

It offers a rapidity and high sensitivity in toxicity assessment of effluents (produced water) compared to conventional standard methods that are time consuming and cost intensive
