1999). For this reason, the fate of these compounds is of interest and remediation of the contaminated sites is inevitable. Traditional remediation methods for TNT-contaminated sites have been primarily conducted by physical–chemical methods, including incineration, landfilling, thermal desorption and soil washing. A study published in 1999 on the economics of various methods of soil remediation suggested that biological soil remediation procedures in Germany are more favorable for technical reasons vis-à-vis soil incineration or soil washing (Jansky and Neumann 1999).

2008; Travis et al. 2008a, b). In addition, Gram-negative bacteria are the best candidates for the microbial incorporation in self-cleaning explosive formulations since they are more tolerant to TNT than Gram-positive bacteria (Fuller and Manning 1997). In conclusion, the development of self-cleaning explosive formulations using microbial catabolic capabilities has recently emerged as an attractive strategy to prevent further TNT contamination (Stenuit and Agathos 2010). A new environmentally benign synthesis route to manufacture military grade TNT, which eliminates the production of red water, arising from the sulfiting process for removing unsymmetrical trinitrotoluene isomers, was introduced by Millar et al.
