Investigadors aconsegueixen descontaminar un aqüífer biològicament

Successful biological decontamination of an aquifer

Researchers at the UAB, in collaboration with the UB and the company Litoclean, manage to decontaminate an aquifer with a high concentration of organochlorine compounds bieostimulating biologically with the use of bacteria capable of breaking down these compounds. They have applied a novel methodology which allows diagnosing the viability of biological treatments for the decontamination of aquifers. The study is published in the lastest edition of Water Research.
