GZA GeoEnvironmental, Inc. (GZA, http://www.gza.net) hosts the
Bioremediation Discussion Group (BioGroup, http://biogroup.gzea.com)
on the Internet, which consists of a moderated mailing list serving
over 1,300 members worldwide, including environmental consultants,
regulators, researchers, and industry representatives. The BioGroup
was developed to be a global forum for discussion of intrinsic
bioremediation (natural attenuation) and enhanced bioremediation.
It is our hope that this forum provides a medium to transfer
technology, standardize biotreatability protocols, and advance the
science/engineering of bioremediation technologies. GZA recognizes
bioremediation is not a panacea for soil/groundwater contamination;
however, we feel it is an under-utilized remedial technology, its
The forum was developed to be a springboard for the pursuit of
innovative approaches to bioremediation. Because success of the
BioGroup is a function of member participation, GZA invites anyone
with experience/interest in bioremediation to join. Due to complex
biogeochemical processes that control contaminant biotransformation,
we welcome input from environmental engineers, hydrogeologists,
soil scientists, microbiologists, environmental chemists, and all
who wish to contribute to this important topic.
Postings are archived as a collaborative effort of the University
of Guelph (Environmental Biology Department), the National Water
Research Institute (Environment Canada), and GZA. The archive URL is
To join the BioGroup, please visit http://biogroup.gzea.com, select
"Membership Info", and follow the directions therein. Members select
whether to participate in a non-digest mode (i.e., receive each
message at the time it is released) or a digest mode (i.e., receive one
message each day summarizing all the postings of that day). *****There
is no membership fee.*****
Please direct any questions about the BioGroup to my attention.
