Abstract: Enzyme-based bioremediation technologies are potentially capable of qualitatively quicker action than traditional microbial bioremediation processes. This in turn qualitatively expands their potential applications. CSIRO and Orica Australia are developing an enzyme technology for remediating pesticide residues in applications as diverse as waste irrigation waters, surface contaminated fruit and vegetables, and spent dip liquors for a variety of agricultural productions and processing industries. Effective and affordable remediation under these circumstances requires some highly specialised enzymes. However early trials on the team's first organophosphate degrading enzyme have shown it is feasible to achieve remediation in such circumstances.
