Bioremediation, Biodegradation, Biodeterioration (BBB)
Many industrial processes produce contaminated wastewater capable of causing serious ecological harm that may result in heavy fines and prosecution if released into the environment without suitable pre-treatment. Conventional treatment systems can be very expensive to build and operate. MBD Energy offers industry partners potential for cost-saving pre-treatment or full bioremediation (depending on the contamination type and severity), together with potential for the production of valuable biomass and algae-based products. Whether utilising select strains of algae or bacteria, all MBD’s bioremediation solutions harness the power of nature to biologically convert industrial waste into biomass, which can be used for fuel, fertiliser, food or feed – depending on the contamination type. Although bioremediation holds great promise for dealing with intractable environmental problems, it is important to recognize that much of this promise has yet to be realized. Specifically, much needs to be learned about how microorganisms interact with different hydrologic environments. As this under-standing increases, the efficiency and applicability of bioremediation will grow rapidly. Because of its unique interdisciplinary expertise in microbiology, hydrogeology, and geochemistry, the USGS will continue to be at the forefront of this exciting and rapidly evolving technology.
Biodegradation is nature's way of recycling wastes, or breaking down organic matter into nutrients that can be used by other organisms. "Degradation" means decay, and the "bio-" prefix means that the decay is carried out by a huge assortment of bacteria, fungi, insects, worms, and other organisms that eat dead material and recycle it into new forms. In nature, there is no waste because everything gets recycled. The waste products from one organism become the food for others, providing nutrients and energy while breaking down the waste organic matter. Some organic materials will break down much faster than others, but all will eventually decay. By harnessing these natural forces of biodegradation, people can reduce wastes and clean up some types of environmental contaminants. Through composting, we accelerate natural biodegradation and convert organic wastes to a valuable resource. Wastewater treatment also accelerates natural forces of biodegradation. In this case the purpose is to break down organic matter so that it will not cause pollution problems when the water is released into the environment. Through bioremediation, microorganisms are used to clean up oil spills and other types of organic pollution. Composting and bioremediation provide many possibilities for student research.

BIODETERIORATION : the breakdown of materials by microbial action. it is the attack on man-made materials by living organisms. As the ways in which such damage can becontrolled and prevented. A wide range of organisms are covered (including bacteria, fungi, algae, lichens, insects andother invertebrates, birds, mammals and plants) and the types of biodeterioration discussed include: natural materials such asfoodstuffs, wood, metal, stone, cellulose and leather synthetic products such as paint, adhesives and plastics; structures and systems such as buildings, monuments, transport systems and vehicles.
