  • Bioremediation of Recalcitrant Compounds

    This authoritative text addresses the latest in bioremediation technologies for three difficult-to-treat contaminant groups: chlorinated solvents, PCBs, and PAHs - one of the most complex and expensive areas of applied remediation ...

  • Natural Attenuation of Contaminants in Soils

    Natural attenuation has become widely recognized as an effective and low-cost alternative to more expensive engineered remediation. However, there are uncertainties about natural attenuationvs long-term effects and risks to the environment. There is a particular need to develop a high level of understanding of the natural attenuation processes in ...

  • Bioremediation of Pollutants in Soil and Water

    A detailed overview of innovative ways to combat the pollution of the environment. 17 peer-reviewed papers have been divided into five primary categories: Bioremediation Feasibility and Applicability--Four papers address a number of issues including how bioremediation technology compares favorably with other technologies from a cost standpoint, ...

  • Bioavailability of Organic Xenobiotics in the Environment

    In the continuing fight against organic environmental xenobiotics, the initial success attributed to bioremediation has paled, in part due to the low availability of xenobiotics entrapped within a soil or sediment matrix. This has generated a very significant wave of interest in the bioavailability issue. However, much experimental evidence ...

  • Of Microbes and Art

    Microbial defacement and degradation of artistic or historic artifacts is a worldwide problem affecting all countries regardless of their history, geographical location, or economic conditions. This is the first comprehensive study of the role of microbial colonization on the degradation of different cultural artifacts (from buildings to ...

  • Perchlorate in the Environment

    Based on a symposium sponsored by the Environmental Division of the American Chemical Society, Perchlorate in the Environment is the first comprehensive book to address perchlorate as a potable water contaminant. The two main topics are: analytical chemistry (focusing on ion chromatography and electrospray ionization mass spectrometry), and ...

  • In Situ Bioremediation of Perchlorate in Groundwater

    This volume presents a critical analysis and timely synthesis of the past decade of intensive research, development, and demonstrations on the in situ bioremediation of perchlorate in groundwater. The intended audiences include the decision makers, practicing engineers and hydrogeologists who will select, design, and operate these remedial ...

  • The Utilization of Bioremediation to Reduce Soil Contamination: Problems and Solutions

    Since the 'pioneering' time of the mid-1980s, the rate of adoption of in situ bioremediation strategies has been stagnating. To paraphrase Mark Twain, however, news of the demise of bioremediation may have been exaggerated; there is still a widespread belief that bioremediation remains a viable and promising technology.Among the many topics ...

  • Bioremediation

    Since its first systematic application during the 1970s, bioremediation, or the exploitation of a biological system’s degradative potential to combat toxic pollutants such as heavy metals, polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), cyanides, and radioactive material, has proven itself over time, and the many advances in molecular techniques have only ...

  • Handbook on Biodegradation and Biological Treatment of Hazardous Organic Compounds

    The removal of chemical pollutants in biological treatment systems and during bioremediation activities is dependent on the capacity of microorganisms to degrade synthetic chemicals. This book presents, for more than 100 synthetic compounds, an overview of the biodegradation processes and pathways that yield detoxification and mineralisation. ...

  • Sulfate-Reducing Bacteria

    In this well-illustrated reference, contributors summarize current research on sulfate-reducing bacteria and examine their relationship to biotechnology processes. This approach enables researchers to identify and define appropriate questions for future research. Chapters examine the biochemical and physiological characteristics of ...

  • Manual for Soil Analysis - Monitoring and Assessing Soil Bioremediation

    Reliable methods for monitoring and assessing soil quality are a prerequisite for successful soil bioremediation projects. The fifth volume of Soil Biology presents detailed descriptions of selected methods for evaluating, monitoring and assessing bioremediation treatments of soils contaminated with organic pollutants or heavy metals.Traditional ...

  • Groundwater Natural Attenuation Calibration Tool
    Published by Groundwater Services, Inc.; distributed by ASTM

    The new FATE 5 software takes the guess-work out of groundwater modeling by deriving calibrated decay-rate parameters based on actual site data, not literature values. FATE 5 is an easy-to-use data evaluation tool that calibrates the Domenico analytical groundwater model to actual measured plume concentrations. Decay-rate values from the ...

  • Methane and Methanol Utilizers

    This collection provides a broad overview of methylotrophic organisms as they relate to useful exploitation by the food, chemical and bioremediation industries. Each article is a rich source of primary references to facilitate the acquisition of more detailed information. ...

  • Biodegradation and Bioremediation

    The diverse metabolic capabilities of microorganisms and their interactions with hazardous organic and inorganic compounds have long been recognized.
