Bioremediation - a process that uses microorganisms to transform harmful substances to nontoxic compounds - is one of the most promising new technologies for treating chemical spills and hazardous waste problems. In order to improve the technology and better understand its capabilities, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is encouraging field tests and evaluation of waste site cleanups using bioremediation. As bioremediation is considered more frequently as a cleanup alternative, citizens need information about this process to help them contribute to informed decision-making regarding the cleanup of waste sites in their communities. The brochure answers some questions about what bioremediation is, where it can be used effectively, and its advantages and disadvantages.
