Low Temperature Ex Situ Bioremediation of Hydrocarbon Contaminated Soils

Many oil degrading bacteria thrive within the mesophilic temperature range, between 20°C and 40°C; bioremediation practitioners view this as the optimal temperature range for microbially driven hydrocarbon remediation. Environmental managers generally halt active bioremediation projects during the winter months as microbial activity is thought to be… (More)
