  3. 3. Phytoremediation of soil contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons and trace elements

    University dissertation from Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Charlotte Marchand; Hogland William; Hijri Mohamed; Bramryd Torleif; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Petroleum Hydrocarbon; Trace Elements; Gentle Soil Remediation Options; Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon; Respirometry; Ecopile; Bacteria; Fungi; Miljövetenskap; Environmental Science;

    Abstract : The rapid urbanization and industrialization has led to an increase of disposal petroleum hydrocarbons (PHC) and trace elements (TE) into the environment. These pollutants are considered as the most toxic contaminants in the world due to their persistence in the environment, and the long range of toxicological effects for living beings. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fractionation of Cu and Fe isotopes in metal-rich mine sites biotic and abiotic processes

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Nathalie Pérez Rodríguez; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cu and Fe isotopes; fractionation; tailings; plants; phytoremediation; organic amendments; soil bacteria; Cu and Fe cycle; covellite; redox processes; Earth sciences - Exogenous eart sciences; Geovetenskap - Exogen geovetenskap; Applied Geology; Tillämpad geologi;

    Abstract : After mineral exploitation the residual grinded and milled material, rich in sulphide minerals and heavy metals, is often left exposed to the atmospheric variables. This weathered mine waste material can lead to the formation of acid mine drainage (AMD) which has negative effects to the environment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Phytostabilization of mine tailings covered with fly ash and sewage sludge

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Botaniska institutionen

    Author : Clara Neuschütz; Maria Greger; Lena Kautsky; Anthony R. Dexter; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ammonium; biosolids; cadmium; copper; energy crop; metal and nutrient leakage; nitrate; phosphate; phytoremediation; plant stress response; root exudates; zinc; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Organism biology Plant physiology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Organismbiologi Växtfysiologi; växtfysiologi; Plant Physiology;

    Abstract : Establishing plant communities is essential for the restoration of contaminated land. As potential cover materials, fly ash and sewage sludge can prevent formation of acid mine drainage from sulfidic mine waste. READ MORE
