Evaluation of bioremediation products
This is a peer-reviewed journal article discussing the efficacy of ten bioremediation products in the cleanup of oil that had been spilled along the Alaska coast.
This paper describes the effectiveness of bioremediation for treating oil spilled in Alaska by the Exxon–Valdez tanker.
DMOZ: Microbial remediation services
This site provides a large list of bioremediation products and services with links to the original websites describing the materials.
Bioremediation: ASM library
This site put up by the American Society for Microbiology provides a good summary of the principles and practices of bioremediation.
This site is dated but it contains specific examples of sites treated by bioremediation with links to further information.
Microbes and their biodegradation pathways
This list is provided by the Biocatalysis/Biodegradation Database and has links for each organism to its known biodegradation pathways.
CandidatusAccumulibacterphosphatis removes large amounts of phosphate from waters and stores it as polyphosphate; as such this microbe is useful in phosphate bioremediation and sequestration.
This webpage contains the genome sequence data for a phosphate-removing microbe used in phosphate remediation and sequestration.

This site contains a description of a bioremediation technology for treating waters derived from unconventional oil and gas extraction, also known as hydraulic fracturing.
Bioremediation of hydraulic fracturing wastewaters
This site contains an article that makes the case for using bioremediation as a tool for dealing with waters derived from hydraulic fracturing operations.
Hydrocarbon treatment products: EPA page
This is an example of a technical product bulletin for a bioremediation product posted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Regenesis' products for bioremediation generally revolve around the concept of reagent biostimulation to enhance the biodegradative activity of intrinsic microorganisms.
JRW Bioremediation LLC
The product that is used by JRW Bioremediation is often determined by the conditions at the site and the decision of what substrate to add to support the appropriate bioremediation process.
