Three bacteria namely, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Serratia marscecens and Bacillus subtilis were screened for biosurfactant activity and consortium was formed to examine the emulsification of oils and hydrocarbons. The bacteria and consortium showed positive blood hemolytic and lipase activity. The bacteria and consortium was able to emulsify vegetable oil effectively as compared to hydrocarbons viz. petrol, Diesel, kerosene and mobil oil.
