1. Introduction. One of the most commonly detected contaminants in groundwater is 1,2-Dibromoethane (EDB), because of its extensive addition to leaded gasoline and soil fumigants several decades ago [].EDB is highly toxic and probably carcinogenic in humans, and it can lead to damage to the lungs, liver, kidneys, stomach, reproductive system, respiratory system, and nervous system in mammals [].   Abstract. Responses of hydrochemical parameters, bacterial community structures, and microbial activities during the natural biodegradation of hydrocarbons leaking from a crude oil pipeline at a site in northeastern China were studied using the hydrochemical method, the polymerase chain reaction amplification of 16S rDNA genes, and denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE).The.

This book covers broader aspect of bioremediation and biodegradation of environmental pollutants. the process of phytoremediation and microbial biodegradation is a comparatively cheaper and relevant approach on a large scale than physical and chemical remediation. (soil, oily sludge, and groundwater) caused by petroleum hydrocarbons.   This chapter reviews the application of additives used in bioremediation of chlorinated solvents and fuels for groundwater and soil remediation. Soluble carbon substrates are applicable to most site conditions except aquifers with very high or very low groundwater flow. Slow-release and solid substrates are intended to be long-lasting in supplying carbon for microbial growth thereby minimizing.

Biodegradation of hydrocarbons in the soil. Crude oils are composed of complex mixtures of paraffinic, alicyclic and aromatic hydrocarbons. A terrestrial oil spill left to its natural fate is gradually degraded by some biological and non-biological mechanisms (Leahy and Colwell ; Atlas and Bartha ; van Hamme et al. ).Photooxidation may contribute substantially to the self. This book describes the basic principles of biodegradation and shows how these principles are related to bioremediation. Authored by leading, international environmental microbiologists, it discusses topics such as aerobic biodegradation, microbial degradation of pollutants, and microbial .

Biodegradation is defined as the biologically catalyzed reduction in complexity of chemical compounds [].Indeed, biodegradation is the process by which organic substances are broken down into smaller compounds by living microbial organisms [].When biodegradation is complete, the process is called "mineralization".Cited by:   G.

Speight, in Environmental Organic Chemistry for Engineers, In Situ and Ex Situ Biodegradation. Biodegradation applications fall into two broad categories: (1) in situ or (2) ex situ. In situ biodegradation processes treats the contaminated soil or groundwater in the location in which it was found.

Ex situ biodegradation processes require excavation of contaminated soil or. Macropores, however, may present a favorable environment for biodegradation because of greater oxygen, nutrient, and substrate supply, and higher microbial populations in earthworm burrows, compared to the soil matrix.

The biodegradation of 2,4‐dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4‐D) was measured in macropores and soil matrix of packed soil.

Soil additives to the system included cubic meters of calcium chloride to increase soil permeability, as well as 2, kil ograms of (percent nitr ogen-phosphorus-potassium) liquid fertilizer for increasing the microbial population and consequent biodegradation rate.

Microbial inocula (the microbial materials used in an inoculation) are prepared in the laboratory from soil or groundwater either from the site where they are to be used or from another site where the biodegradation of the chemicals of interest is known to be occurring.

Microbial biodegradation is the use of bioremediation and biotransformation methods to harness the naturally occurring ability of microbial xenobiotic metabolism to degrade, transform or accumulate environmental pollutants, including hydrocarbons (e.g.

oil), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), heterocyclic compounds (such as pyridine or quinoline. ADVERTISEMENTS: Read this article to learn about the biodegradation and bioremediation in details with diagrams.

Biodegradation or biological degradation is the phenomenon of biological transformation of organic compounds by living organisms, particularly the microorganisms.

Biodegradation basically involves the conversion of complex organic molecules to simpler (and mostly non-toxic) ones. Microbial Biodegradation of Xenobiotic Compounds examines and collects the recent information on the bioremediation technologies around the world.

This book focuses on methods to decrease pollutants created by anthropogenic activities, industrial activities, and agricultural activities.

In situ bioremediation of groundwater has become one of the most widely used technologies for contaminated site treatment because of its relatively low cost, adaptability to site-specific conditions, and efficacy when properly implemented (Stroo ).
