  1. 1. Electroremediation of contaminated soil

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitetsbibliotek

    Author : Pascal Suèr; Örebro universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; electrokinetic remediation; contaminated soil; mercury; heavy metals; organic compounds; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi; Enviromental Science; Miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Electroremediation was applied to contaminated soils in order to study the transport of metals and organic compounds by the external electric field. The electric field caused acidic conditions near the anode, so that copper, zinc, lead, nickel, cadmium, calcium and manganese were released from soil from a chlor-alkali site. READ MORE

  2. 2. Colonisation and PAH degradation by wood-rotting fungi in contaminated soil

    University dissertation from Department of Biotechnology, Lund University

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Vid många industriella processer bildas olika typer av biprodukter, som kan vara mer eller mindre giftiga. En ovarsam hantering av de giftiga ämnena, eller en olycka, kan lätt leda till att den omgivande miljön blir förorenad. READ MORE

  3. 3. Feasibility study of soil washing to remediate mercury contaminated soil

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Abstract : Mercury (Hg) cannot be degraded. Therefore only two principal processes are available for the treatment of Hg-contaminated soil: (1) the separation of Hg from the soil or (2) the stabilisation of Hg within the soil. Prior to selecting a suitable treatment technique, it is necessary to have an understanding of Hg behaviour in contaminated soil, i.e. READ MORE

  4. 4. Remediation of mercury polluted soil

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitetsbibliotek

    Author : Thomas Lifvergren; Örebro universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; soil pollution; soil remediaion; mercury; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Enviromental Science; Miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Mercury in contaminated soil constitutes a wide spectrum of species with highly different properties due to the chemical complexity of the element. Assessments of risk, ecological effects and removal potential require process and mobility studies. READ MORE

    Abstract : Dredging activities at Ports and Harbors are inevitable for the safe navigation of ships and vessels. Dredged material may range from very fine and contaminated sediments to sand and gravels. While, granular dredged material can be directly utilized in civil engineering applications, fine sediments may require further treatment before use. READ MORE
