  • Soil Remediation

    Contaminated sites by hazardous substances are a major environmental concern in Europe e throughout the world. Significant financial and human resources are devoted for the remediation of such sites. Many steps have been taken to restrict or ban from use some contaminants (PCBs, IPA, CLB-derivatives) and reduce discharge of others. However, contaminants can persist for many years in soil and ...


  • Electrokinetic remediation study for cadmium contaminated soil

    Cadmium is a non-essential heavy metal pollutant of the environment resulting from various agricultural, mining and industrial activities and also from the exhaust gases of automobiles (Foy et al., 1978). Due to its high toxicity and greater solubility in water and its wide distributions in aquatic ecosystem, it has been considered as extremely significant pollutant (Lockwood, 1976). Great ...

  • Surfactant–enhanced remediation of soils contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons

    An experimental programme was undertaken to reclaim the soils contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons. Two types of locally available soils, clay with low compressibility and poorly graded sand, were chosen for the study. Both the soils were contaminated with varying percentages of used engine oil and gasoline. Anionic surfactant Sodium Dodecyl Sulphate (SDS) was used to reclaim the contaminated ...
