A large component of monitored natural attenuation (MNA) or enhanced bioremediation is demonstrating that biodegradation processes are occurring or can occur at a given site. Microseeps, in a collaborative effort with Microbial Insights, has expanded the capabilities of Bio-Trap Samplers to not only determine the microbial response, but to also assess the presence and acceleration potential of degradation of a given contaminant in-situ.

This collaborative achievement involves the use of Bio-Trap Samplers which have been baited with known concentrations of contaminants or surrogates (13C enriched petroleum hydrocarbons or fuel oxygenates and fluorinated analogs of chlorinated solvents). This process can effectively answer whether a contaminant is being degraded by indigenous microbes or if a particular amendment would accelerate the biodegradation rate at a site.

Microseeps and Microbial Insights have introduced a new 5-step process for demonstrating that biodegradation processes are occurring or can occur at a given site. This process offers significant advantages on sites where monitored natural attenuation (MNA) or enhanced bioremediation may be the remediation method of choice.
