Bioremediation is a branch of biotechnology that employs the use of living organisms, like microbes and bacteria, in the removal of contaminants, pollutants, and toxins from soil, water, and other environments. It may be used to clean-up contaminated groundwater or environmental problems, such as oil spills.
Bioremediation relies on stimulating the growth of certain microbes that utilize contaminants like oil, solvents, and pesticides for sources of food and energy. These microbes convert contaminants into small amounts of water, as well as harmless gases like carbon dioxide.
Specialized microbes from multiple natural environments are used to build complex, self-regulating microbial systems. Since 3.6 billion years, microbes are adapting and specializing themselves to a multitude of living conditions.
- 0,1-10 µm
- Eubacteria, Archaea, Fungi
- Large morphological diversity
- Large metabolic diversity
- Life without oxygen
- Degradation of complex compounds
- “Simple” life forms with adaptations to different environments with extreme conditions
- High and low temperatures
- Acidic and alkaline conditions
- The ability to form and cooperate within complex microbial communities
There is a natural attenuation which involves all-natural processes removing contamination without any human interference. But we can operate accelerating and enhancing these processes:

What are the advantages of a Bioremediation?
|Custom-made solutions for your issues||Great savings in disposal costs|
|Save and easy application||No use of hazardous chemicals, safe for humans, animals and plants|
|Remediation also undersealed surfaces||Reclassification of the site due to decreased contamination levels|
|Preserving real estate value||Long-lasting conformity within safe concentration levels|
Bioremediation vs conventional remediation
|Low costs for product and engineering||High costs for excavation and disposal|
|Longer time requirements||Fast solution (not always sustainable)|
|Compatible with many conventional remediation approaches|

Bioremediation is a branch of biotechnology that employs the use of living organisms, like microbes and bacteria, in the removal of contaminants, pollutants, and toxins from soil, water, and other environments.
It may be used to clean-up contaminated groundwater or environmental problems, such as oil spills.
Phyto-remediation is a specific remediation process which uses plants to remove pollutants in the soil and in the groundwater. In the case of soil, it is especially suitable for near-surface contamination, because it treats the rooted area underground.
Phyto-remediation can be used for the remediation of fuels, metals, pesticides, explosives and many more substances. New researches are focusing on others, like perchlorate.
