It refers to the bioremediation or biodegradation of contaminants and hazardous pollutants in the environment using yeast. Environment is under great stress due to industrialization and human interfering on the limited natural resources. Bioremediation is an increasingly popular method using microbial strains and their enzymes for degrading waste contaminants such as chlorinated pesticides or other pollutants to protect the environment from pollution. Bioremediation is based on biodegradative processes related to microbial population dynamics in soil or water and its ability to consume xenobiotic as carbon source.

  • Spills during the industrial production process
  •  Disposal of toxic compounds
  • Excessive treatment of agricultural surfaces
  • Phytoremediation
  • Pollution cleaning techniques
  • Contaminated Soil Disposal
  • Waste water Treatment
  • Soil Bio fumigant Treatments for Control Pathogens


Industrial wastes comprise organic compounds such as aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons derived from petroleum, charcoal and wood, as well as natural products, halogenated solvents, pesticides, herbicides and explosives.

Microorganisms (bacteria and yeasts) are subjects of many bioremediation studies, due to their ability of assimilating hydrocarbons. Until now there have been described at least 100 microbial species belonging to 30 genera from which 22 genera of bacteria and approximately 14 genera of yeasts. The way that bacteria act in the biodegradation processes is relatively well known, while there are still many questions concerning the way yeasts participate in the same processes.
