Bioremediation is the biological detoxification or degradation of pollutants found in soil, wastewater, or industrial sludge. Although this process can involve microorganisms (bacteria, fungus, etc.), plant-assisted bioremediation is more commonly known as phytoremediation.

Across the world, bioremediation helps purify water supplies, cultivate better soil, and enhance air quality. Yet, bioremediation is less invasive and can help with environmental impact repair without harming sensitive ecosystems, in contrast to excavation-based remediation techniques, which can be disruptive.

Using bioremediation techniques has a number of benefits over other remediation methods, including the following: A hazardous waste site can be treated using bioremediation technologies for a lot less money than it would cost to treat it using conventional treatment methods because: (1) biologically-based remediation detoxifies hazardous substances rather than merely transferring contaminants from one environmental medium to another; (2) bioremediation generally causes less environmental disruption than excavation-based processes; and (3) it is generally less disruptive to the environment than excavation-based processes.
