Research Papers On bioremediation
YOU SEARCHED :
A 6 page overview of the use of microorganisms in oil spill cleanup. Includes a discussion of the evolution of bacteria and the characteristics which make them suitable for bio-remediation. Bibliography lists 10 sources.
A 10 page paper. The Exxon Valdez spilled 11 millions of oil that eventually stretched for 1,300 miles along the west coast of Alaska. The process used to clean up the shoreline was bioremediation. By introducing specific microorganisms, growth of natural bacteria that eat hydrocarbons is enhanced. This essay discusses and describes the process that was used after this oil spill. It also discusses what happens to marine life after an oil spill. Bibliography lists 9 sources.
A 2 page review of the article by John J. Zodrow, published in a 1997 edition of “Environmental Solutions”. Broaches the topic of bioremediation and suggests that despite public reservation about the practice, bioremediation is a credible means of addressing toxic waste cleanup. No additional sources are listed.
A 3 page review of a December 2003 interview of Dr. Barbara Methe, the collaborative investigator at the Institute for Genomic Research in Rockville, Maryland, and Dr. Derek Lovely, the head of the University of Massachusetts (Amherst) microbiology department. These researchers clarify the benefits of using bacteria, especially the Geobacter bacteria, in the cleanup of hazardous waste. No additional sources are listed.
A 10 page overview of the problem of hazardous waste and current methodologies for treatment. Emphasizes bioremediation of contamination using bacteria and safe disposal of nuclear wastes. Bibliography lists 7 sources.
An 11 page discussion of disposal options for toxic wastes. Compares the attributes and disadvantages of landfill disposal, waterway disposal, bioremediation, and incineration. Emphasizes the advantages of incineration but points out concerns such as resulting air pollutants and the regulations which serve to lessen those pollutants. Bibliography lists 12 sources.
