Bioremediation is a waste management technique that involves the use of organisms to remove or neutralize pollutants from a contaminated site. Soil temperature and soil moisture affect the kinetics of hydrocarbon soil reactions during the bioremediation process. Microbial activities in soil involve enzymatic and biochemical processes related to temperature sensitive. Aerobic biodegradation of hydrocarbon compound is the modification and decomposition of the compound by soil bacterial to produce ultimately cells, carbon-dioxide CO2 and water H2O, this modification is carried out entirely by enzymes located within the microbial cells.
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.
