Experimental investigation was carried out to examine the performance of mushroom on the degradation of total petroleum hydrocarbon in soil in crude oil polluted soil in Niger Delta Area of Nigeria. The result obtained illustrates the effect of soil characteristics on the performance of mushroom and the effectiveness on total petroleum hydrocarbon degradation. The physiochemical parameters considered during the investigation include, Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon (TPH) moisture content, organic carbon, total Nitrate, electrical conductivity, nitrate content (N03), available phosphorus, soil pH, of the soil samples. The parameters obtained were used as indices for evaluating the levels of pollution and remediation. The experiment set up was monitored for a period of 90 days in a hatch bioreactor; it is seen that the TPH concentration decrease with time. A mathematical model of bioremediation of (TPHs) in soil has been developed to predict the remediation rate during the bioremediation of the contaminated soil. Three species of mushroom substrate were used as the remediating agent. The result obtained reviewed that mushroom are capable of degradation Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon in soil environment.
