Bioremediation is a process used to treat contaminated media, including water, soil and subsurface material, by altering environmental conditions to stimulate growth of microorganisms and degrade the target pollutants.
Therefore, SA Zero Waste believes in using bioremediation products that contain natural occurring as well as added non-native microbiology. Bioremediation works by providing these pollution-eating organisms with fertilizer, oxygen, and other conditions that encourage their rapid growth. These organisms would then be able to break down the organic pollutant at a correspondingly faster rate. Therefore, bioremediation is used to help clean up oil spills.
Bioremediation has been successfully used to clean up pollutants including crude oil, gasoline, pesticides, sewage, and chlorinated solvents used in cleaning supplies. The benefits of bioremediation include less disruption of the contaminated environment when compared to other clean - up methods.
Bioremediation can help to reduce and remove the pollution we produce, to provide clean water, air and healthy soils for future generations
