Applications of bioremediation and phytoremediation

Posted on 17. February, 2014.

The decontamination of soil and water from pollutants using microorganisms is known as bioremediation. This can occur naturally or be stimulated, e.g. by the application of fertilisers.  More recently it has been shown that through the addition of matched microbe strains to the medium, the effectiveness of the resident microbe population to decompose contaminants may be enhanced.
