About this book

This volume focuses on innovative bioremediation techniques and applications for the cleanup of contaminated media and sites. It includes quantitative and design methods that elucidate the relationships among various operational parameters, and waste chemistry that defines the cost effectiveness of bioremediation projects. It also presents numerical models.


- 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 industrialwastewater
- 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 toimprove 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 interactionsfor in-situ bioremediation of hydrocarbon-contaminated soils
