Microorganisms can help removing pollutants from water and soil

Environmental pollution is one of the biggest issues of the twenty-first century. As pollutants builds up in soil and water, it is important to remove them. Different methods exist to remove pollutants from water and soil, including biological methods. Bioremediation is a biological process where organisms use pollutants as nutrients or energy sources to carry out their own metabolism. Bioremediation is an environmentally friendly method that produces only non-dangerous compounds like water and carbon dioxide, and it is a natural process without the need for chemicals that harm the environment. In this article is explained how microorganisms can clean water and soil:
