It's not my area, though I am curious about it, but if you go to PubMed and search for 'remediation bacteria' you'll get a large number of papers and reviews--not all of them relevant, but you can get a feel for where the field is (so to speak) at the moment.

yeah bioremediation, there are bunch discovered and others manmade with added plasmids. The problem right now is to increase the efficiency as well as keeping them alive during the processes. Thats where the money is spent
