  • Screens

    WHEN it comes to selling compost, the markets can drive equipment purchase decisions. This was the case for the Lehigh County, Pennsylvania yard trimmings composting operation, which produced 14,000 cubic yards of compost in 2007. “We are doing a lot of work with a soil amendment company that makes products for golf courses,” says Tim Bollinger, Composting Operations Manager for the Lehigh County ...

  • Hazardous waste and not, Baioni-Dicatech system

    The identification, characterization and restoration of contaminated areas now represent a big environmental issue, both at European and national level. In the major industrialized countries the issue of contaminated land has come out in all its gravity in the late seventies when, against a widespread awakening of environmental consciousness, important pollutions events emerged. Consequently, in ...

  • Bioremediation of soil

    In our experience, Bioremediation is best accomplished with Bio-augmentation, the addition of large numbers of selected micro-organisms grown in the production laboratory. In addition to bio-augmentation, several physical and chemical parameters must be controlled in order to obtain optimal growth and maximum degradation of soil contaminants. The major factors that are controlled during ...

  • Gasoline, jet and diesel fuel soils contaminated - Petroleum product storage terminal

    LOCATION:  Tiverton, Rhode IslandPROJECT DATE:  April, 1993 to PresentCLIENT:  Confidential BACKGROUND: Soils at this 106 acre former petroleum product storage terminal have been impacted with gasoline, jet fuel, and diesel fuel over the course of 50 years. Estimates of the impacted soils range from 200,000 to 400,000 cubic yards. ACTION TAKEN: Ex-situ bioremediation is being used ...

  • Determining aluminum tolerance and critical soil pH for winter canola production for acidic soils in temperate regions

    A growing interest in winter canola (Brassica napus L.) across the southern Great Plains has brought about many issues regarding production. One of the issues to be addressed is winter canola's tolerance of Al when grown on acid soils. The objectives of this study were to determine the maximum Al concentration and minimum pH for canola production in a temperate region with a known acid soil ...

  • Chromium detection in water and soil...

    What is chromium? Chromium is a metal that is widely distributed in the earth’s crust (soil and rocks), air and water. Naturally occurring chromium occurs mainly in the chromium (III) form as chromite ore, which contains oxygen, chromium (III) and other metals such as iron. Chromium (VI) compounds are produced commercially from chromite ore for a wide variety of uses. ...

  • Ex Situ Biological Treatment for Soil, Sediment, and Sludge

    The main advantage of ex situ treatment is that it generally requires shorter time periods than in situ treatment, and there is more certainty about the uniformity of treatment because of the ability to homogenize, screen, and continuously mix the soil. However, ex situ treatment requires excavation of soils, leading to increased costs and engineering for equipment, possible permitting, and ...

  • Multifunctional Well Implemented for In Situ Remediation of Hydrocarbon Contaminations in Soil and Groundwater

    Abstract A recently developed Multifunctional Well has been implemented for the remediation of subsurface contamination caused by hydrocarbon spills. Four different remediation processes can be operated within the same well. At optimal efficiency of each remediation process, successive treatment of the capillary fringes, the vadose zone, and the aquifer can be accomplished. Each treatment ...


  • Case study - EDRO in soil at petroleum tank farm site

    Environmental engineers needed quick and accurate screening analysis on a tank farm contaminated with a subsurface plume of fuel oil. Sitelab's EDRO test was performed to delineate the vertical extent of contamination. A drill rig was used to collect samples from the surface down to twenty feet at different locations throughout the property. They needed to quantify the size of the NAPL plume in ...

  • Soil properties affect the toxicities of TNT and RDX to the enchytraeid worm, Enchytraeus crypticus

    We investigated individual toxicities of 2,4,6‐trinitrotoluene (TNT) and hexahydro‐1,3,5‐trinitro‐1,3,5‐triazine (RDX) to the potworm Enchytraeus crypticus using the Enchytraeid Reproduction Test. Studies were designed to generate ecotoxicological benchmarks that can be used for developing the ecological soil screening levels for ecological risk assessments of contaminated soils, and to ...

  • Characterization and treatability of a contaminated soil from an oil exploration zone

    Abstract: A crude contaminated soil, arising from an oil production zone in Tabasco, Mexico was studied. A sample of about 40 kg was dried and screened through meshes 10-100. Total petroleum hydrocarbons and 6 metals (Cd, Cu, Cr, Ni, V and Zn) were determined to the different portions. For soil which passed mesh 10, six non-ionic, three anionic and one zwitterionic surfactant solutions ...

  • Environmental crushing, screening and recycling: Bobo grinding chews on steady diet of ice storm wreckage

    The ice storms in Georgia earlier this year created a tremendous amount of fallen trees and limbs in the metro Atlanta area, which needed to be recycled. The city of Marietta, GA and Cobb County, GA, contracted with Bobo Grinding Inc. based in Woodstock, GA, to reduce the wood waste to create mulch for use at various other sites. Bobo Grinding set up a temporary site for grinding near the ...


  • Optimizing the production of Polyphosphate from Acinetobacter towneri

    Inorganic polyphosphates (PolyP) are linear polymers of few to several hundred orthophosphate residues, linked by energy-rich phosphoanhydride bonds. Four isolates had been screened from soil sample. By MALDI-TOF analysis, they were identified as Bacillius cereus, Acinetobacter towneri, B. megaterium and B. cereus. The production of PolyP in four isolates was studied in phosphate uptake medium ...
