What are the different parameters required for the success of bioremediation process?
Then, what are the strategies for bioremediation?
Bioremediation of Oil Spills on Land Bioremediation strategies range from encouraging natural biodegradation processes (biostimulation), to supplementing the existing system with microorganisms able to degrade the contamination (bioaugmentation), to monitoring and verifying natural processes (natural attenuation).
Furthermore, what are the two types of bioremediation? There are two different types of bioremediation, in situ and ex situ.
Likewise, what types of microorganisms are used in bioremediation process?
Below are several specific bacteria species known to participate in bioremediation.
- Pseudomonas putida.
- Dechloromonas aromatica.
- Deinococcus radiodurans.
- Methylibium petroleiphilum.
- Alcanivorax borkumensis.
- Phanerochaete chrysosporium.
How effective is bioremediation?
Bioremediation has been most successful in cleaning up oil spills in the oceans. One of the important ways of cleaning up this oil spill was by using enhanced in-situ bioremediation techniques where fertilizers were added to provide nutrients to the microbes in cleaning up the oil spill by their metabolic action.
