Bioremediation is a waste management technique that involves the use of organisms to remove or neutralize pollutants from a contaminated site. The Two basic criteria which need to be satisfied for successful bioventing process include sufficient supply of air to maintain the aerobic conditions and maintaining natural hydrocarbon-degrading microorganisms in large concentrations which is enough to obtain reasonable biodegradation rates. Bioventing is infeasible if sites have desired requirements like high water tables, high moisture, and fine-grained soils.
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.
