The use of such organisms is regulated by the Toxic Substances Control Act, and all genetically altered microbes undergo rigorous safety reviews to evaluate any possible risk to human health or the environment before they are approved for use in the field. To date, GEMs have not been used for site cleanup in the United States.

    report. The Hazardous Materials Control Directory * was the primary source of these companies. In situ degradation of hazardous organic materials by microbes is often the most cost-effective cleanup approach. When a site and the hazardous organic material are amenable to in situ biodegradation, the cost for this treatment is often substan-. Soil Microorganisms in Biodegradation of Pesticides and Herbicides Pesticides are the chemical substances that kill pests and herbicides are the chemicals that kill weeds. In the context of soil, pests are fungi, bacteria insects, worms, and nematodes etc. that cause damage to field crops. Thus, in broad sense pesticides are insecticides, fungicides, bactericides, herbicides and [ ].

      The processing of such waste using living organisms is known as biotreatment. These methods are helping society and saving earth from accumulation of hazardous wastes. This method of using microorganisms in degradation of hazardous waste is not only useful but also simple, cost effective and eco friendly.5/5(1). Environmental Biotechnology is one of today’s fastest growing and most practically useful scientific fields. Research into the genetics, biochemistry and physiology of exploitable microorganisms is rapidly being translated into commercially available technologies for reversing and preventing further deterioration of the earth’s environment.

The large amount of hazardous waste generated and disposed of has given rise to environmental conditions requiring remedial treatment. he use of landfills has traditionally been a cost-effective means to dispose of waste.

owever, increased costs of transportation and decreasing numbers of landfill sites now necessitate the examination of treatment processes that can be carried out on site (land farming. Get this from a library.

Use of altered microorganisms for field biodegradation of hazardous materials. [Michael A Gealt; Morris A Levin; Malcolm Shields. Microbial bioremediation is an economic and eco-friendly process that uses naturally occurring microorganisms to degrade hazardous toxic chemical substances into less toxic or nontoxic substances.

A variety of technologies are currently available to treat soils contaminated with hazardous materials, including excavation and burial in a chemically secure landfill, vapor extraction, stabilization and solidification, soil washing, soil flushing, critical fluid extraction, chemical precipitation, thermal desorption and.

Environment worldwide isCited by: 4. technologies to biodegradation research has generated a plethora of new data providing a greater understanding of the key pathways and new insights into the adaptability of organisms to changing environmental conditions. In this timely book, expert authors critically review the most important current research in this exciting field.

Another important current issue is the recalcitrance and biodegradation of bio-pesticide chemicals. We invite scientists to contribute authentic research papers and mini-reviews to this Special Issue of Microorganisms, dedicated to pesticide biodegradation, concerning the microbial biodegradation of pesticides, including bio-pesticides.

Topics. Samuel J. Huang, in Comprehensive Polymer Science and Supplements, Biological Systems. Biodegradation of synthetic polymers can be accomplished by all living systems. The situation in living creatures larger than microorganisms is rather complex: non-enzymatic degradation in vivo, mechanical, enzymatic degradation, microbial degradation, etc.

Microorganisms play an important. The Journal of Hazardous Materials is an international forum that advances world class research by publishing articles in the areas of Environmental Science and Engineering. We publish full-length research papers, review articles, and perspectives that improve our understanding of the hazards and risks that certain materials pose to public health and the environment.

The vast use of such chemicals and their toxic effects had led to the study of the degradation of nitro group-containing chemicals by microbes (an easily available and cost-effective treatment).

In view of this, we discuss the degradation of a few nitro group-containing compounds and herbicide(s) by microorganisms from published literature, and Cited by: 1.

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.
