Bioremediation is a process used to clean up soils
contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons and other hazardous
compounds. In the bioremediation process, indigenous
microbes (biomass) and microbial inoculants degrade
contaminants and detoxify the soil. The byproducts resulting
from this process are carbon dioxide and water. In short,
bioremediation takes contaminated soil and converts the
contaminants into non hazardous substances.
bioremediation can be carried out at the contaminated site
i.e. old gas stations, tank farms, abandoned
referineries, pump stations, etc. Soil is placed in
containment cells in rows 12 to 18 inches deep. Microbial
inoculants, nutrients, biostimulants, water, etc. are
applied with the aid of sprinkler apparatus. Devices,
located under the soil, recover leached contaminants and
provide aeration for the microbes. Oxygen transfer is
optimized by tilling the soil at 7 to 10 day intervals
depending on environmental conditions, microbial activity,
management process, etc.
Bioremediation is an
economical and safe method for cleaning up oil spills
and bioremediating soils contaminated with petroleum
hydrocarbons and dangerous organic compounds. The
bioremediation process utilizes beneficial microbes,
surfactants, micronutrients and bio-stimulants to
decompose contaminants transforming them into harmless
byproducts, i.e. water and carbon dioxide.
process can be performed insitu or exsitu. The insitu
process is adopted where excavation is impractical and
involves either bio-stimulation or bio-augmentation.
Biostimulation involves aeration and the application of
selected micronutrients and bio-stimulants.
Bio-stimulation alone is only effective when indigenous
microbial populations, present in the substrate, are
high enough to degrade the contaminants and when these
microbes can readily adapt to foreign contaminants.
involves the application of
beneficial microbes, that have an affinity towards a
specific contaminant. Typically, these microbes are
suspended by a stabilizing agent and lie dormant in a
spore until activated in solution and applied together
with micronutrients and bio stimulants.
