Bioremediation and Biodegradation
The process of treating the contaminated
media such as water, soil by altering the other environmental conditions to
degrade the pollutants with the help of microorganisms is called . This
biological approach is less expensive and more sustainable than any other
microbial method of treating the pollutants such as wastewater, solid and
industrial waste. The process generally involves the methodology of reaction
that adds a process of to stimulate
the of the
reduced pollutant. This is used to mineralize the or to
partially transform or alter their ability.
The process of breaking down the organic matter by microorganism is known as . As this involves three stages such as , , and . This occurs under a certain circumstance, as now biodegradable technology has become more developed with application in the .
