Marine bacteria in Canadian Arctic can eat up oil and diesel: study

"...The Labrador coast is important for the local Nunatsiavut indigenous population, who rely on the waters for food and business. Its also the site of increasing industrial activity related to maritime shipping and offshore oil and gas sector activities, according to Hubert, and research on bioremediation at high latitudes has been scarce..."

Earthworms could help reduce antibiotic resistance genes in soil

"...Earthworms improve the soil by aerating it, breaking down organic matter and mineralizing nutrients. Now, researchers reporting in ACS' Environmental Science & Technology have dug up another possible role: reducing the number and relative abundance of antibiotic-resistance genes (ARGs) in soils from diverse ecosystems. These results imply that earthworms could be a natural, sustainable solution to addressing the global issue of antibiotic resistance, the researchers say..."

In Phytoremediation, Plants Extract Toxins from Soils JSTOR Daily

"...Bioremediation, the microbiologist Carol Litchfield wrote in BioScience, is “any use of living organisms to degrade wastes. ” Phytoremediation, the use of plants for these purposes, is a part of the larger field of bioremediation. In a sense, people have been using the technique through all of human history, but bioremediation first became a field of scientific study in the 1970s..."

Microbial remedies target chemical threats in the environment

"...Across America, hazardous waste sites pose an ongoing threat to human and environmental health. The most severe cases are known as Superfund sites, of which over a thousand currently exist. Some 50 million Americans live within three miles of one of these zones, potentially placing them at increased risk for cancer and other serious diseases..."

Acidophilic bacteria for metal extraction: biotechnological characteristics and applications

"...Likewise, these acidophilic MOs can bioremediate soils contaminated with metals, extract metals from sludge generated as a byproduct in wastewater treatment, detoxify hazardous waste and recover metals from electronic waste; so the main interest of biomining processes lies in the economic impact that has benefited the world, since it is known that 5% of the gold and 20% of the copper that has been extracted worldwide are using this type of bacteria in bioleaching processes..."
