Amendments to treatment area geochemistry may also be needed to enhance bioremediation—typically these are pH buffering agents for the treatment zone. Anaerobic biodegradation of substances to metabolic acids may significantly lower the pH (Parsons )—for example, the production of H + ions during reductive dechlorination or the.   A review of the literature concerning the biodegradation of toxic and hazardous materials by conventional biological treatment revealed that few generalizations can be made. The main reason for this is that the removal capabilities of any given system are influenced strongly by its physical configuration regardless of the inherent. She has published extensively on the nitrification, denitrification, biological and advanced treatment of industrial wastewaters, adsorption of pollutants from water and wastewater, as well as on the biodegradation of hazardous pollutants, and the impact of heavy metals and organochlorine compounds on activated sludge and biofilm systems. Xanthobacter autotrophicus is a Gram-negative, aerobic, pleomorphic and nitrogen-fixing bacteria from the family of Xanthobacteraceae which has been isolated from black pool sludge in Germany. Xanthobacter autotrophicus can utilize 1,2-dichloroethane, methanol and propane.

Handbook on Biodegradation and Biological Treatment of Hazardous Organic Compounds The removal of chemical pollutants in biological treatment systems and during bioremediation activities is dependent on the capacity of microorganisms to degrade synthetic chemicals.

As they persist, or age, in soil, organic compounds become progressively less available for uptake by organisms, for exerting toxic effects, and for biodegradation and bioremediation by.

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".

Biodegradation is important in wastewater treatment plants where both aerobic and anaerobic processes may be involved. In contrast to other environmental fate processes, such as hydrolysis or photochemical reactions, biodegradation is unique in that the end result is often the complete conversion of the organic substance to inorganic products.

Biodegradation Biodegradation refers to the breakdown of organic compounds in soils by the action of microor- ganisms such as bacteria, actinomycetes, and fungi. Treatment generally consists of optimizing condi- tions of pH, temperature, soil moisture content, soil oxygen content, and nutrient concentration to stimu- late the growth of.
