Bioremediation is a technique and method to manage and eliminate of contamination in which, in order to treat and purify the media such as soil, water or ecosystem and return it to its original condition, microorganisms and organisms are used to reduce, remove or neutralize contaminants. In many cases, bioremediation is less expensive and more sustainable than other remediation alternatives. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA), bioremediation is “a process that naturally uses living organisms to break down hazardous substances into less toxic or non-toxic substances.”
Bioremediation may occur spontaneously (natural attenuation or internal bioremediation) or may be effectively be done only by adding fertilizers, oxygen, etc., which contribute to the growth of pollution eating bacteria in the culture medium (biostimulation). This process occurs both in aerobic and anaerobic environments. Advanced bioremediation can be included injecting more organisms or injecting a food source or injecting bio- stimulants for present microorganisms in the environment, in order to recycle and do bioremediation.
Applying BioGME accelerated bioremediation technology in aquatic environments, with the help of both feed source and bio-stimulant injections for microorganisms, helps to treat water and wastewater, and by helping to regulate carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus cycles improves water biological conditions.
