  • Insitu Soil Remediation case study

    A burst storage tank resulted in severe pollution beneath a building. Using EU70 and added nutrients the contractor was able to use insitu remediation techniques to very quickly reduce the contaminates to levels well below those required by the authorities. Additional benefits were the minimal disturbance to property and access and the ability to provide a complete solution. This could not ...

  • Effect of tween 80 added to the soil on the degradation of endosulfan by Pseudomonas aeruginosa

    Endosulfan, a chlorinated cyclodiene insecticide is of environmental concern because of its apparent persistence and toxicity to many non target organisms. Endosulfan is hydrophobic and persists in soil for more than a year. To overcome the problem of hydrophobic and limited availability, surfactants play a major role in soil remediation. In the present study, the effect of Tween 80 added to the ...

  • Cadmium in soil-plant systems: an overview

    High concentrations of cadmium in soils represent a potential threat to human health because it is incorporated in the food chain mainly by plant uptake. The behaviour of cadmium in soils depends on several factors related to both soil and plant characteristics. This paper provides an overview of such factors as well as of the most environmentally friendly in situ soil remediation techniques in ...

  • Surfactants enhanced recovery of endosulfan from contaminated soils

    Soil pollution due to hydrophobic organic compounds is a wide environmental problem. Extensive use of endosulfan in cotton and paddy to meet the needs of the growing population has led to contamination of soil and other ecosystems. Endosulfan is hydrophobic, highly toxic to aquatic and human population and persists in soil for more than a year. To overcome the problem of hydrophobicity and ...

  • Assessment of physico-chemical behaviour and geotechnical management of pharmaceutical effluent laden clay soils

    Single soil-column studies were carried out to understand the influence of industrial pharmaceutical effluent on the physico-chemical behaviour and index and strength properties of commercial and natural soils, due to artificial contamination extending to a period of 250 days. Two modes of operation, two HRTs and two concentrations of effluents, were the parameters considered. The unique role ...

  • Geosynthetics in the Volgermeerpolder - case study

    The Volgermeerpolder (NL), which was once a landfill site for heavily polluted household and industrial waste, has been cleaned up and turned into a nature reserve. This is the largest soil remediation operation in Dutch history. With the aid of TenCate Geotube, clean sludge was converted into a natural cap (a layer of clean soil) on top of the seal. TenCate GeoDetect is used to monitor the seal ...
