Microbial Biodegradation Principles

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

Description:
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.

Webinar Outline:

  • 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:
Environmental Engineers, Geologists, Soil Scientists, Project Managers, Consulting Engineers, Environmental Educators, Environmental Risk Managers, Environmental protection officers, Lawyers, Municipal Planners

In situ Technologies for Decontamination of Soil

After participating in this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Develop a better understanding of the soil characteristics relevant to bioremediation processes
  • Learn about the technologies that are commonly used during in situ soil bioremediation operations
  • Gain knowledge on microbial factors and environmental conditions controlling soil bioremediation processes
  • Evaluate and compare the performances of several in situ technologies used in the bioremediation of soil
  • Apply your knowledge of various in situ bioremediation technologies to soil decontamination projects

Description:
This webinar provides information on the in situ bioremediation processes for the removal of contaminants from soil, without the excavation of soil and its transportation from the site. The fundamental site characteristics and the controlling microbial and environmental factors during in situ bioremediation of soil will be presented.

Selected in situ soil bioremediation technologies, including intrinsic bioremediation, biostimulation, bioaugmentation, bioventing and landfarming will be discussed.

Webinar Outline:

  • Overview of environmental bioremediation
  • Site characterization for in situ bioremediation of soil
  • Intrinsic bioremediation
  • Biostimulation technology
  • Bioaugmentation technology
  • Bioventing technology
  • In situ landfarming technology

Who Should Attend:
Environmental Engineers, Geologists, Soil Scientists, Project Managers, Consulting Engineers, Environmental Educators, Environmental Risk Managers, Environmental protection officers, Lawyers, Municipal Planners

Ex situ Technologies for Decontamination of Soil

After participating in this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Develop a better understanding of microbial and environmental conditions controlling soil bioremediation processes
  • Learn about the technologies that are commonly used during ex situ soil bioremediation operations
  • Evaluate and compare the performances of several ex situ technologies used in the bioremediation of soil
  • Apply your knowledge of various ex situ bioremediation technologies to soil decontamination projects

Description:
This webinar provides information on ex situ bioremediation processes for the removal of contaminants from soil. The major soil contaminants and the controlling microbial and environmental factors during ex situ bioremediation processes will be presented.

Selected ex situ soil bioremediation technologies, including composting, biopile and ex situ landfarming will be discussed.

Webinar Outline:

  • Overview of environmental bioremediation
  • Composting technology

  • Learn about the technologies that are commonly used during in situ groundwater bioremediation operations
  • Evaluate and compare the performances of several in situ technologies used in the bioremediation of groundwater
  • Apply your knowledge of various in situ bioremediation technologies to groundwater decontamination projects

Description:
This webinar provides information on in situ bioremediation processes for the removal of contaminants from groundwater, without the withdrawal of groundwater and its transportation from the site. The fundamental site characteristics and the controlling microbial and environmental factors during in situ bioremediation of groundwater will be presented.

Selected in situ groundwater bioremediation technologies, including natural attenuation, air sparging and biobarrier technology will be discussed.

Webinar Outline:

  • Overview of environmental bioremediation
  • Site characterization for in situ bioremediation of groundwater
