Bioremediation is a waste management technique that involves the use of organisms to remove or neutralize pollutants from a contaminated site. Bioreactor was constructed of a cylindrical PVC vessel, (458 mm length, 300 mm diameter and a 1 0 mm wall thickness). It provided a liquid volume of 25 L and a gas head space of 7.4 L. The cover of the bioreactor was made of a transparent Plexiglas plate (370 mm diameter and 1 0 mm thickness). It was secured to the bioreactor, through PVC lugs glued onto the top outer periphery of the vessel by means of six bolts. A Vaseline-coated rubber gasket was fitted between the cover and the vessel to provide a gas-tight seal.
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.
