Bioremediation is a waste management technique that involves the use of organisms to remove or neutralize pollutants from a contaminated site. The biopolymers, that are microbial produced polyesters, have the same thermoplastic and water resistant qualities as synthetic plastics. It was concluded that, increasing the carbon to nitrogen (C:N) ratio in a chemical waste water treatment system increased specific polymer yield (i.e, the production of PHAâs increased). Researchers have long been aware that practically any type of biomass can be converted into sugars through chemical or biological treatments. Certain organisms are then capable of forming PHAs from the sugars. Polylactic acid is the second common biopolymer that is produced by microbial fermentation.
Journal of Bioremediation & Biodegradation is also involved in publishing the articles which are related to biotransformation, mineralization, detoxification, recycling and treatment of chemicals or hazardous materials by living microbes and microbial associations or by recombinant organisms. All the articles may be published as review/mini-review/ research article/ case reports/ letter to editors etc. Journal of Bioremediation & Biodegradation addresses the study of microbial communities, genetic biodegradation, biotransformation technologies and also microbial degradation.
