Authored by a world-renowned environmental microbiologist, Biodegradation and Bioremediation presents microbiological, chemical, toxicological, environmental, engineering, and technological aspects of the Edition: 2.
Bioremediation can be grouped into two broad types: intrinsic and engineered. Figure illustrates the differences between the two. Intrinsic bioremediation manages the innate capabilities of naturally occurring microbial communities to degrade environmental pollutants without taking any engineering steps to enhance the process.

Writing for both academics and practitioners, they cover the role of bioremediation in Price: $ A Citizen’s Guide to.
Bioremediation. What Is Bioremediation. Bioremediation is the use of microbes to clean up. contaminated soil and groundwater. Microbes are very small organisms, such as bacteria, that live naturally in the environment. Bioremediation stimulates the growth of certain microbes that use contaminants as a source of food and.

The United States is investing billions of dollars in cleaning up polluted ground water and soils, yet this large investment may not be producing the benefits that citizens expect.
Recent studies have revealed that because of limitations of ground water cleanup technologies, there are almost no. Microbial Biodegradation and Bioremediation brings together experts in relevant fields to describe the successful application of microbes and their derivatives for bioremediation of potentially toxic and relatively novel compounds.
This single-source reference encompasses all categories of pollutants and their applications in a convenient, comprehensive package. The diverse metabolic capabilities of microorganisms and their interactions with hazardous organic and inorganic compounds have long been recognized.
Microbial processes are environmentally compatible and can be integrated with non-biological processes to detoxify, degrade and immobilize environmental contaminants. Bioremediation, the application of biological methods, has been used 5/5(1).
Generally speaking, however, using bioremediation is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly approach to cleaning up certain pollutants in water or soils.
In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency employs bioremediation at more than 50 Superfund cleanup sites across the nation. Role of Biotechnology in Bioremediation: /ch The global environment is now facing a highly critical situation due to rapid urbanization and industrialization as Cited by: 1.
Bioremediation is a method for using the activities of microorganisms and-or plants to transform organic or inorganic compounds that may be harmful to humans, animals, plants or the environment to compounds that are less harmful.
In many instances the toxic compounds may be completely degraded to the simple inorganic components of that compound such as carbon dioxide. Biodegradation and Bioremediation book. Read reviews from world’s largest community for readers. This text considers the microbiological, chemical, envir 4/5.
What was the effectiveness of bioremediation for oil spills. Difficult to establish on dynamic heterogeneous marine shorelines. - New study in shows that fertilizer applications significantly increased rates of oil biodegradation.
Biostimulation. Since its first systematic application during the s, bioremediation, or the exploitation of a biological system’s degradative potential to combat toxic pollutants such as heavy metals, polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), cyanides, and radioactive material, has proven itself over time, Brand: Stephen P.
Cummings. Bioremediation is a process used to treat contaminated media, including water, soil and subsurface material, by altering environmental conditions to stimulate growth of microorganisms and degrade the target pollutants. In many cases, bioremediation is less expensive and more sustainable than other remediation alternatives.

Microbial biodegradation is the use of bioremediation and biotransformation methods to harness the naturally occurring ability of microbial xenobiotic metabolism to degrade, transform or accumulate environmental pollutants, including hydrocarbons (e.g.
oil), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), heterocyclic compounds (such as pyridine or quinoline. “Bioremediation is an area with growing importance and the publication of this book timely. This book provides an array of molecular applications in the fields of bioremediation and microbial ecology.
It is both informative and practical, the examples chosen are highly relevant and the protocols clearly written. Bioremediation techniques are more economical than traditional methods and pollutants can be treated on site, thus reducing exposure risks for personnel.
When compared to standard practices, effluent volumes generated by bioremediation are substantially smaller reducing the problem of sludge disposal. Additionally, since. Thus, this book is useful to the environmental engineering students for designing sustainable technology for biodegradation and bioremediation of industrial wastes.
All chapters give information regarding role of microbes and plants, and their consortium for the degradation of recalcitrant by: "This book is the first to describe explicitly the role of biofilms in bioremediation The book presents the fundamentals of biofilm research and represents a first step in understanding the role of biofilms in bioremediation" from Biospektrum "up-to-date and authoritative reviews indispensable recommended as a reference work" from Biotechnol.
