- ... Bioremediation processes have been credited for reducing high levels of organic contaminants from soils. However, during the bioremediation of soils contaminated with diesel, the conversion of heavy molecules to volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and greenhouse gases (GHGs) and the volatilization of light molecules can occur. The ongoing construction of a large petrochemical complex in Rio de Janei ...

- ... Endocrine disruptor compounds (EDCs) are dangerous pollutants largely present in urban, industrial, and agricultural wastes, and through leaching and degradation from/of these matrices, they can reach and contaminate the environment. Bioremediation of polluted systems from EDCs using white rot fungi can be a valuable alternative approach with respect to conventional physical and chemical methods. ...
