Bioremediation is a waste management technique that involves the use of organisms to remove or neutralize pollutants from a contaminated site. In biostimulation technology, nutrient supplementation for petroleum hydrocarbon degradation has traditionally focused on addition of nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P), either organically or inorganically. The effects of nutrients (i.e. NPK), aeration and biostimulation of indigenous soil microorganisms and inoculation of extraneous microbial consortia on the bioremediation of oil contaminated soil have been investigated.
Journal of Bioremediation & Biodegradation is the journal which competes with the good impact factor journals and it also publishes the articles which fall under the novel applications of biodegradation and biotransformation technology to soil, water, sewage, heavy metals and hydrocarbons. Journal of Bioremediation & Biodegradation addresses the study of microbial communities, genetic biodegradation, biotransformation technologies and also microbial degradation.
