EXAM 4 REVIEW Environmental Microbiology • Selective enrichments – what are they? what do you need to establish them? • Electron acceptors in the environment. • Electron donors in the environment. • Chlorinated organic contaminants • Reductive half reactions • Oxidative half reactions • Balanced stoichiometric equations • Cell yield effect on stoichiometry • Cell yield as function of electron acceptor • Treatability or feasibility studies • Landfarming • Subsurface contamination • Limiting nutrients • Bioremediation • Biostimulation • Bioaugmentation, nonequilibrium microbial ecosystems, rationale for using, what makes success • Biofilters • Can metals be remediated? Monitored natural attenuation – definition; steps required to document the process; when appropriate to use; processes affecting its success Electron donor addition for in situ biostimulation; target contaminants for which the technology is appropriate; rationale for hydrogen generation systems; factors affecting
