It is useful in remediation of the soil contaminated with non chlorinated solvents, some pesticides, wood preservatives and organic chemicals.

Biodeterioration | definition of biodeterioration by Medical dictionary

This historic site has suffered corrosion, despite treatment with synthetic polymers. Ex Plastics have high chemical resistances due to their excessive molecular size for biodegradation.

Bioremediation of chlorinated solvent contaminated groundwater. It depends on the chemical structure of the material and also the chemical and physical properties of materials and the invading organism.

Bioventing is a process which provides oxygen by stimulating naturally occurring soil microorganisms to degrade components in soil.

Bioremediation refers to any process that use microorganisms, green plants or their enzymes do to return the natural environment, which was changed by contaminants, back to its original state.


It is full of nutrients and can be made into a supplement for livestock. These websites out line the prevention methods [26] used for Stone and Wood. Decompose the sludge organics 2. Suitable environmental conditions like temperature, moisture and oxygen are necessary for wood decay.


Biofilms are the communities of micro organisms and have a self developed polymeric matrix and adherent to an inert or living surface. Biodegradation is the process that occurs when organic materials are broken down biodeterioratioj enzymes that are produced by microorganisms. The objectives of anaerobic digestion are 1. Microbes are even able to last long within a low-nutritive environment of a biofilm.

It is usually formed with the attachment of the free floating microorganisms to a surface. This is based on New Zealand Qualification Authority Unit [1] entitled “Discuss microbial biodeterioration and biodegradation. Here volatile material is reduced and the colloidal water-binding structure is biodeteriorration. This page has been accessed 6, pf. There are many reasons for microorganism having biofilms some of the advantages and disadvantages are outlined at “Bakers’ yeast Blooms into Biofilms.

It is used against specific contaminants.

Minimises and prevents scum build up. For future work on smoke treatment for enhancing wood resistance to biodeterioration attack, wood species producing smoke via pyrolysis could be desirable for investigation because the chemical compounds of the wood species would be different from each other. Valdes, is and the different types of Bioremediation [29].

Resistance of smoked glued laminated lumber to subterranean termite attack. International Biodeterioration and Biodegradation It is essential to identify microorganisms that take part in this process in order to properly protect objects from biodeterioration. Avalibilty of nutrients for growth 2.

Biodeterioration [25] also has a impact on a wide range of materials including Stone biodeterioraion Wood evaluation of biodeterioration is very important especially in situations such as construction. Minimises the concentration of growth inhibitory materials.

Microbiological Deterioration of Vulcanized Rubber

Biodeterioration is an undesirable change in the properties of materials caused by vital activities of organisms. Inside the tank, mixing is constantly moving the sludge around.

Certain organisms produce pigment or growth of cellular fibers. A banana can take days, orange peels take one month, paper take months, sugar cane pulp products months. This improves the anaerobic process in five ways.

Living things found in teeth, gums, cells of intestinal or vaginal tract, and non living things found in medical devices such catheters. Braams J Biodeterioration of stone: They are now also biodetefioration the methane to the nearby businesses. Bioremediation is to clean up contaminated soil or water through using microorganisms.
