Applied Bioremediation and Phytoremediation

This work has shown that bioremediation of Petroleum Hydrocarbon-Polluted Soils in Extreme Temperature Environments Rosa Margesin and Innovative Methods for the Bioremediations of Air Contaminants Zarook Shareefdeen can be used for risk-Based Remediation of Contaminated Soil.

Advances and perspective in bioremediation of polychlorinated biphenyl-contaminated soils

It is demonstrated that bioremediation is the most effective and innovative technology which includes biostimulation, bioaugmentation, phytoremediators and rhizoremediations and acts as a model solution for pollution abatement.

Ex situ bioremediation of oil-contaminated soil.

Bacterial Community Dynamics and Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon Degradation during Bioremediation of Heavily Creosote-Contaminated Soil

This study shows that specific bacterial phylotypes are associated both with different phases of PAH degradation and with nutrient addition in a preadapted PAH-contaminated soil.

Studies on Biodegradation of Kerosene in Soil under Different Bioremediation Strategies

Combined biostimulation and bioaugmentation treatment strategy requirements for kerosene oil degradation are defined and thus opened an avenue for its remediation from contaminated soil.

Urea-formaldehyde polymer is currently used as asorbent for containment and clean up of hydrocarbons. The aerobic biodegradability of this polymer andhydrocarbons sorbed to the polymer were tested.

Microbial populations related to PAH biodegradation in an aged biostimulated creosote-contaminated soil

According to the results of the culture-dependent and independent techniques Mycobacterium parmense, Pseudomonas mexicana, and Sphingobacterials group could control B(a)A and Chry degradation in combination with several microorganisms with secondary metabolic activity.

Biodegradation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) by fungal enzymes: A review.

Bioremediation a potential approach for soil contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons: An Overview

Potential of using isolated strains from municipal sludge on soil remediation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, namely genus Micrococus, Sphingomonas, and Corynebacterium demonstrated a high removal rate of PAHs with more than 80% of lower molecular weight ofPAHs degraded after one week incubation.
