  • 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 ...

  • Failure of Magnesium Peroxide to Remediate Petroleum Hydrocarbon-Contaminated Sites (PDF)

    Researchers promote magnesium peroxide as a viable method to aerobically bioremediate petroleum hydrocarbons and restore groundwater quality. Suppliers claim that dissolved oxygen released in the saturated zone promotes biological growth for degrading a wide range of hydrocarbons dissolved in water and sorbed onto soil particles. Yet, staff with the CaliforniaRegional Water Quality Control Board, ...

  • Soil baked to clean up contamination...

    Can an old drill site be cleaned up without adding truckloads of contaminated soil to the landfill? Chevron Canada will be using a technology called thermal desorption to clean up a site located 13 kilometres southwest of Pincher Creek. Leif Sollid, spokesman for Chevron, who is the operator of the site, said they considered two options for the clean up. The soil is classified as a non-dangerous ...

  • Remediation of silty-clay hydrocarbon contaminated site using Ivey-sol selective phase transfer technology

    Earlier this year, Ivey International Inc. secured its first remediation project in Alberta using its Ivey-sol Selective Phase Transfer Technology (SPTT). This patented technology is being used to treat extensive soil and groundwater contamination at an active service station in Red Deer, Alberta.

  • Decontamination of soil contaminated with petroleum grease

    Contamination modifies the engineering properties of soil, thereby restricting its further use either as a construction material or as a supporting medium. Due to the scarcity of land, it becomes imperative to reuse the land for infrastructure developmental activities. Out of numerous soil contaminants, automobile grease is one of the most prominent. Considering the cumulative impact of ...

  • Emission of N2o from Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons contaminated soil at different water contents added with vermicompost

    Vermicompost is typically applied to improve soil quality, but can be used to remediate hydrocarbon-contaminated soils. Little information is available on how contamination and subsequent bioremediation with vermicompost affects emissions of N2O and CO2, important greenhouse gases. A sandy loam soil with different water contents (40%, 60%, 80% and 100% of water holding capacity (WHC)) was ...
