  • Biotechnology: The Ultimate Pollution Prevention Tool

    Much has been written about biotechnology. Indeed, so much has been written that the word 'biotechnology' means many things to many people. To the medical/pharmaceutical community, biotechnology is big business, and one that has greatly advanced drug development. To others, crop biotechnology conjures up thoughts of 'franken-foods,' and similar provocative images. Biotechnology in environmental ...

  • Brownfield development - Biotechnology cleans contaminated soil

    The Tooele Army Depot (TEAD) is in Tooele, Tooele County, Utah, 35 miles southwest of Salt Lake City. It consists of two separate areas, the North Area and the South Area. The North Area covers about 25,000 acres in Tooele Valley south and west of Tooele. Since 1943, TEAD has had a fourfold mission: store ammunition, demilitarize ammunition, rebuild military equipment and store military ...


  • Sono-biodegradation: a promising alternative to existing bioremediation methodologies

    Pollution of fresh water has become a serious concern today for developing countries. There are umpteen treatment methodologies and protocols, but still there exists a demand for new technologies for wastewater treatment.

  • In-situ chemical reduction (ISCR) versus emulsified oils: how to decide?

    Many industry practitioners, such as environmental consulting and engineering firms, are seeking topical decision-making criteria for their options when remediating impacted groundwater.  'Few, if any, of us are experts in the myriad fields of science associated with applied environmental biotechnology. As such, technology end-users, and vendors alike, are often confused and frustrated with ...


  • Composting of petroleum contaminated soil case study

    Soils contaminated with hydrocarbons are generated during oil and gas production. Remediation by land treatment is a popular, inexpensive option however, in cold climates temperature limits the time available for treatment each year. Companies would prefer an economical, low maintenance treatment alternative which could operate throughout the year in cold climates. Environmental BioTechnologies, ...

  • Bioremediation of Kerosene and Diesel Fuel in soil case study

    The United States has a large hazardous waste problem that is threatening both human health and the environment. Current analysis of the nearly 1,200 National Priority List (NPL) sites reveals that about 80% of the sites are contaminated with organic compounds. Clean-up of hazardous waste sites, as a national priority has accelerated the development of bioremediation technologies. Environmental ...

  • Where Do Ketones and Butanol Come From during ERD?

    Acetone, butanol and other ketones are often detected at low levels during anaerobic bioremediation (Jacob et al., Battelle Bioremediation Symposium Proceedings, 2005). These compounds can be produced during anaerobic fermentation by the bacterium Clostridium acetobutylicum and a variety of related organisms growing on substrates such as potatoes, corn, rye, millet, cheese whey, apple pomace, ...

  • Regulation of cancer by therapeutic vaccination and dietary bio-modulation involving organ-specific mitochondria

    Cancer therapy should aim to prevent recurrent disease. Surgery and toxic treatments remove only symptoms associated with cancer without trying to intervene in the aetiology, therefore the disease may recur. The autologous cancer vaccine supplemented with bio-modulation might fulfil requirements for effective tumour therapy. The autologous tumour vaccine is formed in the same way as our bodily ...

  • The advantages and benefits of aerobic cometabolism

    Aerobic metabolism yields the energy-transferring molecule TPA at a much higher rate than anaerobic metabolism. The higher energy yield produces a greater viable population. The oxygenase enzymes involved in the cometabolism of chlorinated solvents are not induced by the presence of contaminants, so a high microbial population has a proportionately high yield of oxygenase enzymes. Aerobic ...
