ABSTRACT

    The contemporary remediation approaches are defined, and bioremediation is discussed in detail.

    The basic characteristics and environmental problems associated with hydrocarbons resulting from spillage/leakage are defined.

    The theoretical EA (UK) best practice for bioremediation process is presented, and the process in practice, utilising enhancement technology, is proposed as a Best Practicable Environmental Option to remediate hydrocarbon contaminated soil.
