A new cellular automata model of the complex set of interacting phenomena which take place in bioremediation is described, which allows to treat a wider set of cases. The model has proven able to accurately describe several experimental data on a pilot plant. The general theory and the C.A. transition function are shown, and an example of the whole framework (fluid dynamics, chemical and biological layer) is analyzed and compared with experimental results
