  • Enhanced Aerobic Bioremediation of Petroleum UST Releases in Puerto Rico.

    Abstract: Releases of petroleum compounds from underground storage tanks (USTs) containing diesel fuel and gasoline are a serious and increasingly prevalent problem in Puerto Rico. Remediation of groundwater impacted by these releases utilizing common methodologies can be quite costly and require long periods of time to implement. Oxygen is often the limiting factor retarding optimal ...

  • Microbiological quality of packaged sprouts from supermarkets in Mumbai, India

    A survey to assess the potential public health risk related to consumption of minimally processed sprouts was conducted in retail establishments in Mumbai, India. A total of 80 sprout (40 mixed sprout and 40 alfalfa sprout) samples procured from two different supermarkets were tested for aerobic plate count (APC), coliform count (CC), staphylococcal count (SC) and for the presence of pathogens ...

  • A Chemical Dynamics Model for CAH Remediation with Polylactate Esters.

    ABSTRACT: The polylactate esters of sorbitol, xylitol and glycerol are a class of new chemical compounds that slowly release lactic acid into groundwater. The lactic acid is biotransformed into pyruvic acid and subsequently into acetic acid releasing hydrogen in both steps. The hydrogen is used by naturally occurring dechlorinating bacteria to reduce PCE to ethene by way of TCE, DCE and VC. A ...

  • Sick-building syndrome and building-related illness

    Significant health problems linked to very poor indoor air qualityIndoor Air Quality (IAQ) deals with the content of interior air that could affect health and comfort of building occupants. The IAQ may be compromised by microbial contaminants (mold, bacteria), chemicals (such as carbon monoxide, radon), allergens, or any mass or energy stressor are more prevalent than anyone could have predicted. ...

  • Accelerated Bioremediation as an Alternative to Conventional Remedial Technologies.

    ABSTRACT: Application of bioremediation as an alternative technology to expedite soil and ground-water remediation has been effective in reducing the concentration of hydrocarbons at an affordable cost. Bioremediation processes can be achieved by the addition of biological organisms into the soil and ground water which are contaminated and are microorganism deficient. The microorganism's ...
