||Two main approaches are used in Germany for microbiological soil cleanup: conditions for microbial breakdown of soil pollutants are optimized by adding nutrients and by adjusting the pH-value and moisture content; microorganisms are added to the soil in large quantities. In both cases, personal protective equipment is commensurate with the hazards posed by the microorganisms, which are classified into four groups by German law.
