Example of bioremediation?
Bioremediation is defined as the use of microorganisms or other
life to break down environmental pollutants. One example is the use
of oyster mushrooms to clean up oil spills.

How can you get some bioremediation?
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.

What is Bioremediation?
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.

Bad things about Bioremediation are?
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)

The organisms used in bioremediation are?
The organisms used in bioremediation are microorganisms and plants. The usage of plants in bioremediation is called as phytoremediation. Few examples of microorganisms that can be used in bioremediation are: * Pseudomonas putida in degrading the organic solvents such as toluene, * Pseudomonas aeruginosa in degrading oil (very much likely to be used in remediating oil spill) Few examples of microorganisms that can be used in phytoremediation are: * mutants strains of Arabidopsis thaliana is aluminum tolerant * Plants such as Elodea, Myriophyllum sp. and Phaseolus vulgarus are for the removal of TNT (2,4,6-trinitrotoluene).
