Abstract

Damage to buildings and monuments by microbiological growth is a cause of serious concern. Due to the necessity of treatment being assessed for in situ application, it is important to select a safe and effective strategy approach that safeguards both the environment and human beings. In the past decade the most frequently used and effective biocides have been banned due to their environmental and health hazards. This paper reports the development of remediation actions based on environmentally innocuous alternatives derived from active compounds produced by Bacillus sp. in conjugation with natural plant products from Brazilian Cerrado plant extracts.
