The waters of the East River, Newtown Creek and the Gowanus Canal are among the local sites where benzene and oil residues mingle with persistent pollutants, such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), to form a stubbornly toxic soup that resists remediation. For environmental microbiologist Ray Sambrotto, Lamont Associate Professor at the Lamont–Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University, the solution for cleaning up such sites may be as simple as a common soil bacterium isolated from a compost pile in the 1990s.

Out of the lab and into the marketplace: How New York State Academic Research Is Creating Future Jobs

A similar principle was applied to aid the clean-up of the oil dumped into the Gulf of Mexico during the Deepwater Horizon explosion in 2010. While the project is still very much in a pilot phase, the results to date have been promising and the prospect of being able to reclaim highly polluted land for future development is attracting attention from both the public and private sectors.

Allied Microbiota gets funding from PowerBridgeNY

Toxic waste contamination prevents the full use of real estate and depresses property values. We provide property owners and their site managers with a cost-effective, energy efficient, clean-up technology based on bacteria in an engineered setting. We consult with clients on the appropriate, regulatory-approved application of our product to obtain the maximum appreciation of land values. The team is currently setting up a pilot project to prove their remediation technique can significantly reduce concentrations of recalcitrant pollutants such as PCBs and VOCs.
