Abstract : The Federal Integrated Biotreatment Research Consortium, referred to as the 'Consortium,' has begun several research tasks to develop innovative biotreatment processes. Consortium activities are aligned into five primary research thrust areas: biotreatment of explosives, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), heavy molecular-weight polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (hPAHs), chlorinated solvents, and the development of specialty bioreactors. This issue of Consortium News is devoted primarily to ongoing research efforts. Additional items include a 'Technology Profile' on composting and Consortium news items. The Consortium's research thrust areas focus on U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) cleanup problems. Some of the technologies being developed also have a high potential for use in remediating non-DoD sites, such as Superfund Sites and contaminated sediments. A brief overview of each major work unit is given below. Requests for more detailed information on any work unit can be directed to the Consortium Co-Directors or to the point of contact (POC) listed for each work unit.
