Short description: This Case Study Bulletin describes the research project which evaluated, at laboratory-scale and field-scale, a biological PRB for remediating organic contaminants. 
Long description: Biological systems have the potential to degrade a wider range of contaminants, therefore a research project was designed to study how a biological PRB could be used to not only degrade organic contaminants but also to be self-sustainable over years to decades.
