Terry Hazen discusses when itís best to resort to engineered bioremediation of contaminated sites, and when itís best to rely on natural attenuation. Recent advances have greatly broadened the potential applications for bioremediation. At the same time, scientistsí knowledge of biogeochemical processes has advanced and they can better gauge how quickly and completely contaminants can be degraded without human intervention.
