  • Blending microbes demands gentle touch

    Environmental-restoration product manufacturer requires fast, uniform, gentle blending of powdered microbes, enzymes and nutrients The microbial formulations that United-Tech, Inc. produces are used to break down or detoxify a broad array of complex, often-toxic organic compounds, greasy spills and other contaminants in a variety of ...

  • For Syracuse company, it`s all about spec grinding (with a serious twist) yields specialty soil blends for blowing

    To the layman, making a soil capable of being applied by a blower truck would seem fairly rudimentary: take dirt, grind it, screen it and blow it. It's not rocket science, they'd say, and, at times, Cliff White wishes all that were true. The founder and owner of Syracuse, NY-based Ground Effects, Inc., has found - and proves it daily - that creating a soil product to meet a specific need, really ...

  • Winter wheat blends (mixtures) produce a yield advantage in north carolina

    Seed mixtures, or blends, of small grain cultivars are unknown in eastern U.S. wheat production, where numerous diseases and abiotic stresses often reduce yield and quality. In 2004–2005 and 2005–2006, a field experiment was conducted at Kinston, Plymouth, and Salisbury, NC, to compare performance of eight soft red winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars having a range of maturities with ...

  • Bioremediating Explosives Contaminated Soil

    From the beginning of World War II until the 1970s, the site that is now the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Crane, Indiana (NSWC-Crane) was the home of a major bomb manufacturing operation. Explosive compounds such as TNT, Royal Demolition Explosives (RDX) and Her Majesty’s Explosive (HMX) were handled loose and drifted through air vents. Often, the material settled on the roofs of buildings, ...

  • Dual-function growth medium and structural soil for use as porous pavement

    Permeable grass-covered surfaces can reduce the quantity of storm water runoff and filter out potentially harmful chemicals. The objective of this study was to develop permeable structural soils that sustained healthy turf growth and filtered heavy metals from contaminated pavement runoff. The basic soil medium was a 50:50 mixture (v/v) of expanded shale (ExSh) and quartz sand (QS). The ExSh ...

  • Toxicity of diesel contaminated soils to the subantarctic earthworm Microscolex macquariensis

    Several fuel spills have occurred on subantarctic Macquarie Island (54°30′ S 158°57′ E) associated with storing fuel and generating power for the Island's research station. The Australian Antarctic Division began full‐scale, on‐site remediation of these sites in 2009. To develop appropriate target concentrations for remediation, acute and chronic tests were developed with the endemic earthworm, ...

  • The use of microbial gene abundance in the development of fuel remediation guidelines in polar soils

    Terrestrial fuel spills in Antarctica commonly occur on ice‐free land around research stations as the result of human activities. Successful clean‐up of spills requires appropriate targets that enable contaminated sites to be signed off as no longer posing environmental risk following remediation. These targets are based on knowledge of the impacts of contaminants on the soil ecosystem and on ...

  • Toxicity of fuel contaminated soil to antarctic moss and terrestrial algae

    Fuel pollution is a significant problem in Antarctica, especially in areas where human activities occur, such as at scientific research stations. Despite this, there is little information on the effects of petroleum hydrocarbons on Antarctic terrestrial biota. This paper demonstrates that the Antarctic mosses Bryum pseudotriquetrum, Schistidium antarctici, Ceratodon purpureus and the Antarctic ...

  • Comparative study on nutrient removal of agricultural non-point source pollution for three filter media filling schemes in eco-soil reactors

    Nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus) from agricultural non-point source (NPS) pollution have been increasingly recognized as a major contributor to the deterioration of water quality in recent years. The purpose of this article is to investigate the discrepancies in interception of nutrients in agricultural NPS pollution for eco-soil reactors using different filling schemes. Parallel eco-soil ...

  • From gasworks to playing field case study

    There had formerly been a gasometer on this site, which had contaminated 3000 cubes of soil with an average TPH of 6,500mg/kg and an average PAH of 400mg/kg. Sanctus, the contractor for the work, were looking for a way of treating the soil on site and avoiding any landfill costs. We suggested to them that they apply two litres of Alga Power 101, our unique seaweed-based media, with 100g of ...

  • Impact of heterozygosity and heterogeneity on cotton lint yield stability

    In the last 8 yr, cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) growers in North Carolina have experienced variations in the year-to-year lint yield averages that range from a 56% increase to a 49% decrease. This variability results in wild fluctuations in income and a desire for more stable yields. Genetic structure may contribute to stability. This study was conducted to determine the impact of heterozygosity ...
