Fellow Environmental Scientist/Engineer,

GZA GeoEnvironmental, Inc. (GZA) is hosting a bioremediation discussion
group (BioGroup) on the Internet.  The BioGroup consists of an unmoderated
mailing list serving over 800 members worldwide.  The BioGroup was
established to provide a global forum for the scientific and engineering
community to discuss intrinsic/enhanced bioremediation topics.  GZA hopes
this forum provides a medium to transfer technology, standardize
biotreatability protocols, and advance the science and engineering of
bioremediation technologies.

GZA expects the forum to be a springboard for the pursuit of innovative
approaches to bioremediation engineering.  Because the success of the
BioGroup is a function of the participation of its members, GZA invites
anyone with experience and/or interest in bioremediation to join the
BioGroup.  Due to the complexities of biogeochemical processes which 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.

GZA recognizes that bioremediation is not a treatment panacea; however, we
feel it is an under-utilized remediation technology, its limitations

Postings from the BioGroup are currently archived as a collaborative effort
of the Department of Environmental Biology (University of Guelph), the
Groundwater Remediation Project (National Water Research Institute,
Environment Canada), and GZA.  You can visit the archive at

To subscribe to the mailing list, visit our homepage at
and scroll to "Let's Talk".  Choose the "Bioremediation Mailing List"
selection and follow the directions therein.  Members may choose to
participate in either a "real time" mode (i.e., receive each message at the
time it is posted) or "digest" mode (i.e., receive one message each day which
summarizes all the postings of that day).  BioGroup members may post messages
to the mailing list by sending them to "bioremediation at".  There is
no membership fee!

Please direct any questions about the BioGroup to my attention.
