  • Bioremediation is defined as the process whereby organic wastes are biologically degraded under controlled conditions to an innocuous state, or to levels below concentration limits established by regulatory authorities.
  • Bioremediation process involves detoxification, where the waste is made less toxic, and mineralization, where the waste material is converted into inorganic compounds such as carbon dioxide, water and methane.
  • According to Dr. Ting, bioremediation processes may be classified  into two main categories: in-situ and ex-situ. 
  • Bioremediation can often be carried out on site, often without causing a major disruption of normal activities. This also eliminates the need to transport quantities of waste off site and the potential threats to human health and the environment that can arise during transportation.
  • Bioremediation is an option that offers the possibility to destroy or render harmless various contaminants using natural biological activity. As such, it uses relatively low-cost, low-technology techniques, which generally have a high public acceptance and can often be carried out on site.
  • Factors such as site conditions, indigenous microorganism population, and the type, quantity, and toxicity of contaminant chemicals present determine the bioremediation technology most suitable for a specific site.
  • Bioremediation can be applied to an environmental problem in a variety of ways. The five general approaches to bioremediation : aboveground reactors, solid phase treatment, composting, landfarming, and in situ treatment. 
  • Bioremediation can prove less expensive than other technologies that are used for clean-up of hazardous waste.
  • The economics of bioremediation are almost always significantly more favorable than other techniques. The primary reason is that there is no need for the hauling and expensive disposal costs of contaminated soils.
  • It is estimated that bioremediation costs 1/3 to 1/2 that of incineration, and for complex mixtures of waste, bioremediation typically offers savings of 60-90% over landfill-disposal costs.
  • The estimated cost of biotreatment of biodegradable contaminants in soil to range between $40 and $100 per cubic yard, as compared with cost as high as $250-$800 per cubic yard for incineration and $150-$250 per yard for landfilling.
  • The current technology-based land remediation market is worth in the region of 120 130 million. Technologies such as soil washing, bioremediation and other extractive methods have developed to a stage where they are both commercially viable and compete head-to-head with excavate and landfill options.
