Bioremediation

Bioremediation

Bioremediation is the process of using microorganisms to digest harmful contaminants and turn them into nontoxic compounds. Nature will heal itself, but it often takes a great amount of time. Using microbes helps speed up this process by concentrating the number of helpful microorganisms within a given area. Microscopic organisms digest hydrocarbons and transform them into harmless carbon dioxide and water. Bioremediation is a safe, natural process that produces no harmful byproducts. Since it can be done on site, it is often more cost-effective than having soil or water hauled away for burning or other reclamation. It is also safer for workers, because no harmful chemicals are used in the process.
