Bioremediation is a waste management technique that involves the use of organisms to remove or neutralize pollutants from a contaminated site. In recent times, interest in the use of a closely-related technique, known as vermin composting (using earthworms to breakdown organic materials) has increased. A combine approach of composting and subsequent vermicomposting brings the advantages of both process and minimizes the adverse impact of waste on the environment. Through composting the required temperature for ensuring satisfactory pathogen kill would be achieved and product passes EPA rules for pathogen reduction.

OMICS Group through its Open Access Initiative is committed to make genuine and reliable contributions to the scientific community. It follows an Open Access publication model that enables the dissemination of research articles to the global community free of cost. All the articles are distributed in any digital medium for the responsible purpose, possess subject to proper attribution of authorship and right to make small number of printed copies for the authorâs personal use. 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.
