This book focuses on innovative bioremediation techniques and applications for the cleanup of contaminated media and sites. It includes quantitative and design methods used to elucidate the relationships among various operational parameters as well as covering the chemistry of wastes that determines the cost effectiveness of bioremediation projects. It also includes information covering various numerical models.

Contents include

  • Bioremediation techniques: towards an ecosystem approach to remediation in the Great Basin; experimental investigations on in-situ bioremediation of an aquifer contaminated with ammonium; remediation of hexavalent chromium by biosorption; bioregeneration of contaminated absorbents containing hazardous wastes; efficiency of cyperus corymbosus, typha angustifolia, phragmites, australis, and eleocharis dulcis in constructed wetlands for chromium treatment of electroplating industrial wastewater; microbiological peculiarities of cattle waste transformation into food additions; the increase of pea cells sensitivity to chemical compounds during chromatin activation periods; modification of biological process of treatment - real way to improve effluent.
  • Bioremediation of hydrocarbon contaminated materials: biodegradation of PCBs in aqueous and soil systems; biosurfactant production by indigenous soil microbes degrading BEPH and lubricating oil; potential of plant-microbial interactions for in-situ bioremediation of hydrocarbon-contaminated soils; concurrent fuel and chlorinated solvent remediation -bioslurping free product and monitored natural attenuation of the soluble plume; biodegradation of crude oil in cold climate conditions - summary of the methods used to study biodegradability; additives affecting the microbial degradation of petroleum hydrocarbons; intrinsic biodegradation of benzene in contaminated groundwater - a case study illustrating the application of numerical modelling.
  • Soil-specific bioremediation techniques: bioaugmentation for soil bioremediation; degradation of aromatic xenobiotics in soil by enzyme systems of microorganisms and plants; removal of heavy oil sludge contamination by composing; bioremediation of TNT-contaminated soil; in-situ remediation of contaminated soils by bioelectrokinetic remediation and other competitive technologies; aerobic biodegradation kinetics and soil gas transport in the unsaturated zone.
