Describes current trends of research on bioremediation in the various aspects of catabolic pathways and specific enzymes, the genetic design of engineered degradative microorganisms, the bioaccessibility and bioavailability of substrates and nutrients, process development, and field studies. Such techniques are becoming more important as industry is releasing every larger quantities of organic pollutants and the spectrum of xenobiotics released to the biosphere is increasing. Among the 28 topics are the microbial transformation of the chiral pollutants mecoprop and dichlorprop, indications for a novel pathway in bacterial fluranthene degradation, active biological containment for bioremediation in the rhizophere, biotic and abiotic factors involved in the bioavailability of pollutants, and bioaugmentation using repeated inoculations of xenobiotic- degrading bacteria.
