Increased population and industrial revolution, alongside the wrong agricultural management systems, are putting massive pressure on the natural resources available for human beings. Several international organizations are raising flags and knocking the future risks and costs of exhausting the available natural resources. Soil is categorized as a slowly renewable resource to a limit that made soil experts classify soil as a nonrenewable natural resource. Therefore, soil pollution is among the most important issues discussed at the global level. However, soil remediation is very high costly, time-taking, and needs experts for handling. Bioremediation is considered one of the most promising methods of soil rehabilitation by simulating the behaviour of nature in curing it. With lower costs, noticeable results, and eco-friendly alternative solutions, bioremediation might be the most suitable strategy for polluted lands.
