Bioremediation products to mitigate fracking Bioremediation Technology Improves Injection Well Performance The liquid bioremediation product, Bio Energizer, supplied by Probiotic Solutions, saved the owner significant capital investment costs while avoiding the need to acquire new permits from regulatory agencies. Facing closure of a 49-unit apartment complex in Arizona because of wastewater overflow in effluent injection wells, the engineer turned to bioremediation to bring the system back to its original capacity. When the apartment complex was built in the mid-1980s, the consulting engineer recommended and installed an activated sludge wastewater treatment plant on site. Wastewater is treated and pumped to 14 underground injection wells (approximately 4 ft in diameter, and ranging from 10 to 14 ft deep) for disposal.

4 Pillars of a Sustainable Future
by Nori Muster

Green Energy
We stop global warming when we move away from oil, coal, and nuclear power. We develop peaceful energy from renewable sources.

We redeem our lost land, air, and water from toxic waste. For example, if we use microbial bioremediation, phytoremediation, and mycoremedation, we can lower the rate of global warming gasses diffusing into the atmosphere. Restoration of toxic sites will add more foliage to help dissipate carbon waste.

We conserve water and other natural resources through using less, recycling, weatherizing, fixing drips, picking up trash, eating less meat, and hundreds of other known ways to reduce the carbon footprint.

Modernize our Story of Nature
The old paradigm is that humans are god's gift to the earth, and we are here to dominate and exploit it. The new paradigm is that humans are part of nature and of nature.

Future generations will honor the time when science finally turned toward nature to learn how to create a sustainable future.

Phytoremediation of soil and water in chronic kidney disease (CKD) affected areas a case history in Sri Lanka. Kelaniya University researchers used plants to remove heavy metals from the environment in areas with high rates of deadly CKD. "Phytoremediation has been defined as the use of plants to remove or inactivate pollutants from soils and wastewaters. It all started in 1948 when Pichi Sermolli, an Italian scientist observed an unusual accumulation of nickel in some plants. Today scientists know of hundreds of plant species capable of selectively absorbing and accumulating specific elements and substances without showing toxicity symptoms—they are known as hyper accumulators. . . . Plant shoots can be harvested and the heavy metals can be extracted." Dr. Kochian at the Plant, Soil and Nutrtion Lab, New York, said that the flower phlaspi does well with heavy metals, and also cleans up radioisotopes.

Two widely used products are calcium-based peroxides for aerobic degradation and sulfate-based salts for anaerobic degradation.

academic article (abstract only) In this study we have investigated the potential of a new isolated strain of Enterobacter cloacae (ERCPPI- 1), for bioremediation of an oily sludge contaminated soil in aqueous phase. Contaminated soil with black color and sticky texture was sampled from a polluted site near Shiraz oil refinery, Iran. Total petroleum hydrocarbon (TPH) content of this sludge was 66.1% (w/w) which contained more than 48% (w/w) asphalts and resins.

academic article (abstract only) The site located near an ecological receptor had cis-1,2-DCE and VC concentrations of 47,000 and 8,000 ig/L, respectively, in the source are wells. A conceptual site model was developed to locate the source (undocumented buried drums) of groundwater contamination. In-situ Chemical Reduction (ISCR) using carbon source and ZVI particles was used. Aquifer geochemistry at the site is anaerobic and mildly reducing. The groundwater is relatively stagnant, with an estimated groundwater velocity of about 0.0023 ft/day.

academic article (abstract only) Bioremediation was evaluated for tri- and dichlorobenzenes, monochlorobenzene, and benzene in a freshwater wetland at a Delaware Superfund site using field sampling, in situ microcosms, and flow- through bioreactor testing. Field sampling and microcosm results showed that both aerobic and anaerobic biodegradation occurs in the wetland and that bioaugmentation with WBC-2, a dechlorinating culture developed for degradation of chlorinated ethanes and ethenes, could enhance anaerobic degradation.

academic article (abstract only) Remediation of a large 7-acre, free-phase gasoline (product) plume has been accelerated by combining both physical and enhanced biological treatment technologies. The strategy reduced the estimated remediation time frame from 15 years to less than 5 years, decreased estimated power consumption by 800 megawatt-hours, and preserved approximately 150 million of gallons of groundwater in an arid agricultural area. The project entered monitored natural attenuation in December 2012 and is on track for a no-further action (NFA) determination in early 2014.

A Novel Bioremediation Method for Shallow Layers of Soil Polluted by Pesticides, Naofumi Shiomi

Bioremediation blog Basidiomycete fungi are very effective chelators of metal ions. Many basidiomycetes are capable of recovering the potentially harmful metals cadmium, lead, and mercury from the environment, making these fungi a promising candidate for bioremediation of areas with heavy metal pollution [1]. Our fungal toolkit could prove useful for this purpose as well-upregulation of these metal chelating pathways and biosensing genetic circuits could feasibly be integrated into a basidiomycete strain, decreasing pollution while simultaneously monitoring and reporting pollution levels.
