Geobacillus Activities in Soil and Oil Contamination Remediation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Members of the Geobacillus appear to be present in most soil environments – eventhose never experiencing elevated temperatures. Most have some ability to grow onhydrocarbons and may therefore be exploited in bioremediation processes. In such aprocess the need for bioaugmentation may only be necessary to increase the initialrate of activity. Biostimulation, on the other hand, may have an important role whendepending on Geobacillus spp. in bioremediation processes. The hydrocarbondegradingabilities of Geobacillus spp. may therefore find useful bioremediationapplications in a variety of different situations in the future.
