This guide covers recommendations concerning the application of anaerobic bioremediation to mitigate chemical pollutants.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F20 on Hazardous Substances and Oil Spill Response, this guide was withdrawn in September 2010.
1.1 This guide covers recommendations concerning the application of anaerobic bioremediation to mitigate chemical pollutants (see Appendix X1, Table X1.1, ).
1.2 This is a general guide only, assuming the bioremediation to be safe, effective, available, applied in accordance with manufacturers recommendations and in compliance with relevant environmental regulations.
1.3 This guide addresses the application of anaerobic bioremediation alone or in conjunction with order technologies, following chemical pollution of terrestrial environments.
1.4 This guide does not consider the ecological effects of the anaerobic bioremediation.
1.5 This guide applies to all terrestrial environments. Specifically, it addresses available information concerning anaerobic bioremediation of chemical products and wastes of industrial processes.
1.6 In making bioremediation-use decisions, appropriate government authorities must be consulted as required by law.
1.7 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. In addition, it is the responsibility of the user to ensure that such activity takes place under the control and direction of a qualified person with full knowledge of any potential or appropriate safety and health protocols.
