About the book:

Genetic engineering, nutritional amendments, and the introduction of nonindigenous microorganisms are among the many bioaugmentation techniques that can be applied to bioremediation. The articles in this collection discuss methods of enhancing biological activity that contributes to remediation of contaminated sites such as wetlands, coastlines, and manufactured gas plants.

This book describes laboratory and field studies of the biological processes connected with in situ remediation of soil and water at sites contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons,PAHs, PCP, TNT, insecticides, and chlorinated solvents. Site characteristics (e.g., soil porosity, nutrient availability) are discussed, as are methods for determining when bioaugmentation is needed. Bioaugmentation methods discussed include biodehalogenation systems, microbial filters, microbial encapsulation, fertilization, niche adjustment, inoculation with laboratory-cultured and -adapted microorganisms, and the use of mixed fungi and bacteria.
