Abstract Bioremediation of creosote-contaminated materials is reviewed here by characterizing coal-tar creosote, identifying techniques for assessing the biodegradability of its many chemical constituents, examining known routes of microbial transformation of these chemicals, and reviewing the performance of previous bioremediation efforts. The approach is developed as a model system to project the potential application of bioremediation to ameliorate environments contaminated by complex mixtures of structurally diverse hazardous chemicals.
