  • Sample preparation and analytical techniques for determination of polyaromatic hydrocarbons in soils

    Polyaromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) have been determined in soil samples for many years. PAHs can arise in the environment from natural sources, oil and petroleum products and combustion processes. Although oil spills influence PAHS concentrations in local areas, the major sources of PAHS are anthropogenic and derived from land based combustion sources. PAHs are globally distributed and the highest ...

  • Extraction & Analysis of PAHs in Olive Oil Using SupelMIP SPE – PAHs and GC-MS

    Polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) consist of fused aromatic rings and are formed as a by-product during the combustion of fuels. Seven PAHs in particular are known for their carcinogenic properties: benz[a]anthracene, benzo[a]pyrene, benzo[b]fluoranthene, benzo[k]fluoranthene, chrysene, dibenz[a,h]anthracene, and indeno[1,2,3-cd]pyrene. As such, they are monitored in both the environment and food ...

  • Micropollutants in stormwater runoff and combined sewer overflow in the Copenhagen area, Denmark

    Stormwater runoff contains a broad range of micropollutants. In Europe a number of these substances are regulated through the Water Framework Directive, which establishes Environmental Quality Standards (EQSs) for surface waters. Knowledge about discharge of these substances through stormwater runoff and combined sewer overflows (CSOs) is essential to ensure compliance with the EQSs. Results from ...

  • Bioremediation of an Oil Spill

    Bioremediation is the method of choice to effectively clean up a small spill of hydrocarbons. In this case, five-hundred liters of BTEX has spilled from an above ground storage tank into a pasture that is located at the west edge of the Royal Roads University (RRU) grounds. The soil is classified as a Gleyed Eutric Brunisol based on recent laboratory analysis; it contains clay, but is fairly ...
