Abstract The bioremediation of petroleum hydrocarbons has evolved into a number of different processes. These processes include in situ aquifer bioremediation, bioventing, biosparging, passive bioremediation with oxygen release compounds, and intrinsic bioremediation. While these processes are often viewed as competing technologies they are actually part of a continuum of biodegradation processes governed primarily by the interplay between oxygen and carbon availability. Generally the more carbon that needs to be removed per unit time the more oxygen that needs to be supplied. By understanding this continuum approach, bioremediation can be applied as a flexible, variable-speed technology, where the effort can be increased or decreased through oxygen supply. This paper will discuss the carbon-oxygen demands of each process and the interplay between processes. The paper will provide operating guidelines for configuring bioremediation systems for maximum flexibility.
