Bioremediation is using a species to clean up a specific area.
when recovering metals from ores
Bioremediation of petroleum is not effected by amount of oxygen present
Uranium bioremediation is the process of cleaning soils and waters contaminated with uranium.
yes, bioremediation is very safe because it used bacteria to clean up contaminated environments.

That is a very complicated questions because bioremediation has so many different meaning. For example, BioWorld Hydrocarbon Treatment is a form of bioremediation. They add microbes to an oil spill along with an enhancer to speed up the cleaning process. Some companies just add microbes and call that bioremediation, some just add a fertilizer (which can cause algae to bloom, which isn't good). So I would look up BioWorld's Hydrocarbon treatment! Look up their website.

Bioremediation uses living organisms to clean up contaminated soil or water. Despite its broad definition, bioremediation usually refers specifically to the use of microorganisms. Bioremediation is a combination of two words - bio, short for biological, and remediation, which means to remedy. The use of plants to clean up the environment, known as phytoremediation, is also considered a type of bioremediation.Bioremediation can occur on its own (natural attenuation or intrinsic bioremediation) or can be spurred on via the addition of fertilizers to increase the bioavailability within the medium (biostimulation). Recent advancements have also proven successful via the addition of matched microbe strains to the medium to enhance the resident microbe population's ability to break down contaminants. Microorganisms used to perform the function of bioremediation are known as bioremediators.
The correct spelling is bioremediation and not bioremediation. Bioremediation is using deliberately introduced or naturally occurring microorganisms to break down environmental pollutants. Other forms of life can be used to consume the pollutants as well. The process cleans up a polluted area.
it can affect farmers land :)
Bioremediation is defined as using biological organism to remove hazardous substances from an area Therefore, some examples of bioremediation include using living organism to clean up an oil spill or to remove pollutants from soil/water Hope that helps!
Bioremediation can be defined as any process that uses microorganisms, fungi, green plants or their enzymes to return the natural environment altered by contaminants to its original condition.

the act of treating waste or pollutants by the use of microorganisms (as bacteria) that can break down the undesirable substances
From the theoretical standpoint, there are no disadvantages to bioremediation The process involves using biological methods to recycle or reconstitute waste products.The only disadvantages are:cost of start-up (since this method is not widely accepted)Governmental aid or regulation (this again reflects on the first point. Many governments fail to see the potential long term benefits of bioremediation)
