    It is thus one of the rare books that provide a large image of the microbial metabolism potential for xenobiotic degradation. the book is of great interest, useful, and would be core reading for researchers and students exploring the microbial degradation capacities.” (Robert Duran, Environmental Science and Pollution Research, Vol. 39, ).   Our interest in the microbial biodegradation of xenobiotics has increased many folds in recent years to find out sustainable ways for environmental cleanup. Bioremediation and biotransformation processes harness the naturally occurring ability of microbes to degrade, transform or accumulate a wide range of organic pollutants. Major methodological breakthroughs in recent years .

The book entitled “Advances in Biodegradation and Bioremediation of Industrial Waste” edited by Ram Chandra published by CRC Press of Taylor and Francis Group (), pp., Price: $; ISBN ; ISBN (Fig.1). This book covers broader aspect of bioremediation and biodegradation of environmental pollutants.

The pollution due to industrialisation is Cited by:   degradation of pesticides and other toxic chemicals by microorganisms. Definition • Biodegradation or biological degradation is the phenomenon of biological transformation of organic compounds by living organisms, particularly, microorganisms • It involves the conversion of complex, toxic organic molecules to simpler, non toxic ones.

INTRODUCTION The microbial degradation of petroleum in aquatic Microbial transformation of organic contaminants normally occurs because the organisms can use the contaminants for their own energy needs, growth and reproduction. The ability of certain microorganisms to degrade petroleum seems to be an adaptive process and is.

Model-based relationship between the microbial transformation rate of organic chemicals and their physicochemical by: The anaerobic degradation of organic pollutants is generally slower than under aerobic conditions. With the aim of in situ remediation of anoxic soils contaminated with organic pollutants, an insertion-type soil microbial fuel cell (MFC) was constructed and inserted into waterlogged soil to enhance the biodegradation of phenol and simultaneously electricity generation.

Mercury is a well-known example of an inorganic chemical that undergoes biotransformation by bacteria to methyl-mercury (Rai et al., ; Moore and Ramamoorthy, ; Moore, ). Algae also play an important role in the cycling of organic metals in aquatic systems.

Algae biotransform some metals to less toxic organic compounds (Moore, ). With the aim of removing toxic and harmful organic pollutants from pharmaceutical wastewater, various technologies such as adsorption and microbial degradation have been developed [5][6] [7] [8.

Other synthetic chlorinated organic pesticides of concern as contaminants of environmental soil include tetrachlorophenol (TCP), pentachlorophenol (PCP), and the tin-containing pesticide, tributylin (TBT).

TCP is an insecticide and a bactericide and is widely used as a preservative for latex, wood, and by:. Microbial biodegradation. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Jump to navigation Jump to search. Microbial biodegradation is the use of bioremediation and biotransformation methods to harness the naturally occurring ability of microbial xenobiotic metabolism to degrade, transform or accumulate environmental pollutants, including hydrocarbons (e.g.

oil), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). A methodology is also proposed whereby the impacts of the toxic compounds on the biodegradation of the biogenic organic material in the waste streams can be predicted.

Finally, it is noted that new information about environmental biotechnology is being generated by biologists faster than engineers can assimilate and apply it.The degradation of organic material in terrestrial, limnological, and marine environments is thus based on the growth of microorganisms on organic compounds, which is termed chemoheterotrophic growth style, depending on the availability of organic nutrients for growth.

The processes can be dependent on.
