Emissions from human activities contribute to air pollution, global warming, and environmental degradation. These effects can harm human health and ecosystems, underscoring the importance of sustainable practices to mitigate the impact of emissions on the environment. By the time on the first exploration of reservoirs and first design contracts dates of refineries, there are many challenges appeared on the health, safety, and environment by conduction of the oil such as the higher contents of sulfur, nitrogen, oxygen, halogen, metals, and aromatics. There are many side effects on the human health starting from the simple to the malignant diseases such as cancer. Also, the safety of equipment and catalysts are affected by the presence of high content of these impurities in oils by many phenomena such as corrosion, erosion, and poisoning. In this study, microorganisms’ colony has been isolated from Amara crude oil by using 9k medium (ATCC 2436). It was found that this colony has the ability to make bio desulfurization (BDS) of crude oil from 4.4 to 3.845 %. Also, it was found that this isolated colony upgraded the oil in improvement API-density.
