The focus of this review is to examine some of the reasons biodegradation may not take place in the environment even though its occurrence in the laboratory has been demonstrated. Some approaches for dealing with chemical persistence will be discussed. In addition, the potential of bioremediation as an in situ clean-up technology will be considered.
