Excerpt: EPA recommends the natural attenuation processes be evaluated when assembling an appropriate removal action plan for a site with petroleum contaminated soils. While natural attenuation processes include biodegradation, sorption, dispersion, and volatilization, numerous studies have indicated that the natural, in-situ biodegradation process, often called intrinsic bioremediation, is a primary mechanism for the attenuation of petroleum hydrocarbons. Biodegradation is the only natural attenuation mechanism that has the potential to destroy the contaminants in-situ with nontoxic inorganic end products.
