  • Bioremediation of antibiotic pollution by a salt-marsh plant

    The effects of antibiotic contamination may be attenuated by the common reed, new research shows. The study found that the common reed (Phragmites australis), sourced from a temperate estuary with brackish water, had capacity for the bioremediation of the veterinary antibiotic enrofloxacin (ENR). The authors suggest that salt-marsh plants and their associated micro-organisms could be a valuable ...

  • EOx™ releases “O2 power” for safer, cheaper, long-term bioremediation

    EOx™ by EOS Remediation is a calcium-based bioremediation product that provides a controlled oxygen release in contaminated groundwater and saturated soils. The sustained release of oxygen stimulates indigenous bacteria, accelerates bioactivity, and promotes increased contaminant removal. The result is superior “clean up” that sidesteps the many environmental downsides of traditional, more ...

  • Clean-up of dense nonaqueous-phase liquids (DNAPLs) at US hazardous waste sites

    The US EPA's Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation has constructed a website that compiles available information related to the cleanup of dense nonaqueous-phase liquids (DNAPLs) at hazardous waste sites. This initial phase addresses the most common DNAPL contaminants: chlorinated ethenes (e.g., tetrachloroethene and trichloroethene) and multi-component wastes (creosotes, ...

  • Tour of Augean landfill facility

    Members of the Northern Division enjoyed a tour of Augean landfill facility on 22nd September 2010. Members were welcomed by Paul Lealman (Site Manager) and James Wathen (Technical Manager) who provided an overview of the history of the site and future plans for the site. Due to the size of the site – some 12.7 hectares – members were taken around the site by minibus to see both the ...

  • Iranian fungi show promise in cleaning up oil spills

    Iranian scientists have isolated local strains of fungi that can digest petroleum compounds and may be useful in cleaning up polluted sites, especially in similar, semi-arid areas. The researchers isolated fungal strains from oil-contaminated sites within the Arak refinery in Iran and found some of them to cut the amount of petroleum pollution in soil by more than half. Although ...

  • When oxygen makes pollution worse

    Oxidation of sulfides in mining wastes produces high concentrations of sulfate, iron, and other metals, and frequently also very low pH values. Compared to fine-grain mine tailings, produced in ore treatment by flotation and other techniques, waste rock is just displaced material comprising large size particles and deposited in waste rock piles. In waste rock piles with high permeability and ...
