Study Results from Institute for Environment Update Understanding of Ecology Research [Phytoremediation of zinc contaminated soils using silver birch

Take a microbe that occurs naturally in eastern cottonwood trees, sprinkle it on lawn grass or willow tree roots and then plant them in contaminated soil. Toxins are removed from the soil, the plant lives longer and the toxins are not only absorbed by the plant, but the microbe actually breaks down the toxins.

Summary of mercury bioremediation project
One of the principal pollutant in Amazon region is mercury, known worldwide for its toxicity. Conventional methods have been used to remove Hg from contaminated environments. In general, laborious treatment systems, with high cost. In order to solve the environmental problem regarding to mercury, and make its bioremediation, we built a bioremediator using Escherichia coli DH5α through the protein mercury reductase (MerA).

Bioremediation of Oil Spill
In this demonstration, students learn about the affect of oil on aquatic environments.
Bacteria can be used to clean up oil spills in the ocean through bioremediation. Bioremediation is any process that uses decomposers and green plants, or their enzymes, to return a contaminated environment to its original condition. Specific bacteria can be used to bioremediate specific contaminants, such as hydrocarbons, which are present in oil and gasoline.

The Vision Alignment Project
A Vision for Stewardship

This Vision was one of two beautiful Visions sent to us from our friend, Pua, in Hawaii. Mahalo to you, Pua!

I see a world where the earth's soils are restored to abundant, vibrant health; where soils that have been depleted and eroded away, the hardpan is soothed and healed; where desert boundaries are shrinking again and true soil is restored to each wounded place; where the microbiota, the plants and animal life unique to each place return to home and thrive; and where the plant and animal life out of place return to home or to the soil; each to its place, in balance in spirit and space.

Renewed soils and forests call out to the mists, the rains and the dew and they respond in kind. Streams and springs are running full, clean and healthy. Our reefs and coastal stretches are cleansed of decades of soil and oil. We harvest and recycle the plastic patches in the sea. Our oceans and all that reside there are cleansed of toxins; the ocean teems with life again. The amazing biotic and energetic networks that once held all ecosystems and organisms in graceful and elegant balance are reconnected. Our hands work together and we all take up this loving work, this healing, in recognition of the blessed relationship we have with the earth and the universe.

Our gardens and farms are restored to the wealth of diversity they once knew. We no longer need or use chemicals to grow food because we are tending the soil in the way that it needs us to. We are receiving bountiful, healthy, delicious food and in return we care for that which feeds us. Everyone is fulfilled in body or spirit; we all have access to clean water and good food. We share and support each others' wellbeing and in doing so, we need less and our abundance deepens. We place our care of the earth in the center of all our decision making and in that way we are also supported. We are listening, hearing and understanding the messages of the universe. In doing so, we become family once again.

Spill Kit 35S is an environmentally safe and economical alternative to the use of chemicals. It includes two applications for spills up to 10 square meters. It is designed to bring two of the best hydrocarbon degrading technologies into one to enhance the three steps of bioremediation. Each kit includes BIOSURF, a plant derived biosurfactant solution rich in nutrients that promotes bacterial activation and solubilizes the hydrocarbons, and BCP 35S, a powder blend of beneficial and naturally occurring microorganisms (Bacillus and Pseudomonas) specialized to degrade hydrocarbons molecules.

The Bioremediation Answer: Microbes
Utilizing microbes, bioremediation can clean up contaminated soil and groundwater while limiting impacts on the environment, citizens and animals. During the bioremediation process certain microbes are used to "devour" contaminants, including oil and other petroleum products, solvents and pesticides.

1 - Elimination of all vapors and odors from spilled Oils and Fuels
2 - Stain reduction back to the original soil color
3 - Elimination of Petroleum Compounds through a natural process of bioremediation
4 - Restoration of soil back to original health

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.
