Bioremediation is a waste management technique that involves the use of organisms to remove or neutralize pollutants from a contaminated site. Steroids have been detected in sewage treatment plant effluents and in surface water. Their eventual presence in the environment poses a significant potential problem of interference with normal function of the endocrine systems, and can thus affect reproduction and development in wildlife. The steroids of major concern in the aquatic environment, due to their endocrine disrupting potential, are mainly the estrogens.
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.
