Bioremediation is a quickly advancing box and the expertise has been utilized effectively to remediate many infected websites. The objective of each soil remediation strategy is to augment the degradation, transformation, or detoxing of pollution and to guard, retain and maintain environmental quality.

Advances in our figuring out of the ecology of microbial groups able to breaking down numerous toxins and the molecular and biochemical mechanisms wherein biodegradation happens have helped us in constructing functional soil bioremediation options. Chapters facing the appliance of organic ways to soil remediation are contributed from specialists – specialists within the zone of environmental technology together with microbiology and molecular biology – from educational associations and industry.

3 Case Study: Two Simple Models for a Petrol Filling Station To further explain the concepts discussed above, we include the results from a case study. The case study had two aims: to compare two easy tools for holistic environmental assessment and to gain insight in the environmental cost from two treatment options. This was done by comparing two treatment techniques in two computer models, using approximately the same data set (Andersson 2003). The treatment techniques that were compared were pump and treat with absorption (below called adsorption for short), and bioremediation.
