GZA GeoEnvironmental, Inc. (GZA) hosts the Bioremediation Discussion
Group (BioGroup, http://biogroup.gzea.com) on the Internet. The
BioGroup consists of a moderated mailing list serving >1,600 members
worldwide, including consultants, regulators, researchers, and
industry representatives. (Postings are moderated to screen out
off-subject/commercial material). The BioGroup is a global forum
for discussion of intrinsic bioremediation (natural attenuation) and
enhanced bioremediation. It is our hope this forum provides a medium
to transfer technology, standardize biotreatability protocols, and
advance the science/engineering of bioremediation. GZA recognizes
that bioremediation is not a panacea for soil/groundwater
contamination; however, we believe it is an under-utilized remedial
technology, limitations notwithstanding.
The forum was developed to be a springboard for the pursuit of
innovative approaches to bioremediation. Because its success is a
function of member participation, GZA invites anyone with
experience/interest in bioremediation to join. Due to the complex
biogeochemical processes that control contaminant transformation,
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 accepted) 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.
