To tackle the problems many methods were applied such as physical, chemical and biological or bioremediation. The potential of bioremediation as a method of overcoming oil pollution is very good.

Here we thoroughly discussed current research in immobilization through several approaches which are covalent immobilization, entrapment, encapsulation and adsorption.
