Bioremediation is a technology that uses microorganisms to treat contaminants through natural biodegradation mechanisms through the addition of microbes, nutrients, electron donors, and/or electron acceptors (enhanced bioremediation). This technology, performed in situ (below ground or in place) or ex situ (above ground), is capable of degrading organic compounds to less toxic materials such as carbon dioxide (Co2), methane, and water through aerobic or anaerobic processes. This report focuses on the use of enhanced bioremediation technologies at 104 Superfund remedial action sites and other contaminated sites. It provides a snapshot of current applications of bioremediation and presents trends over time concerning selection and use of the technology, contaminants and site types treated by the technology, and cost and performance of the technology, contaminants and site types treated by the technology users, developers, and other interested parties about the capabilities and current applications of bioremediation.
