Environmental Bioremediation - Microbial Biodegradation Principles
May 15, 2023 /
Course Code: 0502-WEB23
After participating in this webinar, you will be able to:
- Understand the mechanisms of microbial biodegradation processes used in the removal of contaminants from soil and groundwater
- Develop a better understanding of the microbial and environmental factors controlling site bioremediation processes
- Identify the types of contaminants commonly found in soil and groundwater
- Learn about the kinetics of biodegradation
- Determine the type of biological processes needed for the removal of contaminants from soil and groundwater
This webinar addresses the removal of contaminants from soil and groundwater by microbial processes, focusing on microbial metabolism and biodegradation mechanisms during aerobic and anaerobic biodegradation processes. Factors controlling the effectiveness of site bioremediation, including the nature and concentration of contaminants, bioavailability and biodegradability of contaminants, type of microorganisms present at the site and environmental conditions will be discussed.
- Introduction to bioremediation
- Major contaminants of soil and groundwater
- Fundamental aspects of biodegradation: Cell metabolism
- Oxidative and reductive biodegradation processes
- Bioavailability and biodegradability of contaminants
- Microbial and environmental factors controlling bioremediation processes
- Microbial kinetics
Who Should Attend:
