  • Bioremediation of antibiotic pollution by a salt-marsh plant

    The effects of antibiotic contamination may be attenuated by the common reed, new research shows. The study found that the common reed (Phragmites australis), sourced from a temperate estuary with brackish water, had capacity for the bioremediation of the veterinary antibiotic enrofloxacin (ENR). The authors suggest that salt-marsh plants and their associated micro-organisms could be a valuable ...

  • ISCR-Enhanced bioremediation accelerates groundwater cleanup at active manufacturing facility

    In the winter of 2008, full-scale in situ chemical reduction (ISCR) was implemented as a removal action at the Siltronic Corporation site in Portland, OR, to treat a source area contaminated by releases of TCE. The source area was considered to be the portion of the site with concentrations of TCE in groundwater greater than 11,000 µg/L, suggesting the presence of TCE as DNAPL. ...

  • Encouraging bacteria to clean up oil spills

    Catastrophic accidents account for 9 per cent of the oil released into marine environments. Several disasters, including the 1989 Exxon Valdez in Alaska, and the Prestige incident, off northern Spain in 2002, have seen the use of 'bioremediation' as part of the clean-up operation. Recent work has investigated combinations of natural additives to increase the speed and efficiency of ...

  • Small boost of electricity aids natural clean-up of PCB contaminants

    Applying a low voltage to polluted river sediment can boost microbes’ natural ability to degrade harmful polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) contaminants, according to a new study. The approach could be a cost-effective, sustainable strategy to bioremediate polluted sites. PCBs are persistent contaminants as they remain for long periods in the environment, particularly in water, soil and ...
