By promoting the growth of bacteria that consume pollutants like oil, solvents, and pesticides for food and energy, bioremediation cleans up contaminated sites. These bacteria transform pollutants and harmless gases like carbon dioxide into minute amounts of water.

For bioremediation to occur, the appropriate temperature, nutrition, and foods must be present. The removal of contaminants could take longer if certain components are absent. By introducing "amendments" to the environment, such as molasses, vegetable oil, or just plain air, unfavourable circumstances for bioremediation can be addressed. These modifications make it easier for bacteria to flourish, hastening the bioremediation process.

It is possible to perform bioremediation "in situ," or at the pollution site, or "ex situ," or elsewhere.
