If contaminated sites are allowed enough time nature will eventually break down the organic pollution, this can be a lengthy process partly due to the many competing species of bacteria and the poor biological environment. On site treatment using Bioaugmentation speeds up this process to make it commercially viable.
Bioaugmentation involves the selection of bacteria that target the relevant type of contamination. Once isolated they are grown separately in large numbers that are then introduced to the treatment site. This has the effect of rapidly increasing the types of bacteria that breakdown the identified pollutants. Once the contamination has been reduced the bacteria revert to naturally occurring levels.
To improve the biological environment nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorous and calcium are added, this encourages bacteria growth and speeds up the remediation process.
