Microorganisms help provide soil with minerals and nutrients that improve the nutritional content of plants, and thereby provide better food for people and animals. More >
Advantages of Bioremediation
Bioremediation is a natural process and is therefore perceived by the public as an acceptable waste treatment process for contaminated material such as soil.
Vegetation-based remediation shows potential for accumulating, immobilizing, and transforming a low level of persistent contaminants. In natural ecosystems, plants act as filters and metabolize substances generated by nature.
New opportunities in earth friendly biotechnology
Environmental biotechnology is not a new field, composting and wastewater treatments are familiar examples of old biotechnologies. Recent studies in molecular biology and ecology offer new opportunities for more efficient processes.
