As D.H. Chapelle said, bioremediation holds great promise for dealing with potentially disastrous environmental problems, but much of this promise is yet to be fulfilled. Chapelle pointed out that "much needs to be learned about how microorganisms interact with different hydrolic environments." Once we learn more about this aspect, the success and applicability of bioremediation will increase. As technology and knowledge through research increases, bioremediation will become a central technique in solving environmental problems. I think it should be used because of the benefit of it being an essentially natural process. The use of microorganisms rather than harmful chemicals is a clean way to help the environment, and will not adversely affect wildlife.
