  • Soil washing - a suitable pretreatment process for vacuum distillation during soil remediation

    Soil washing and vacuum distillation are two different methods used for soil remediation. It is because of their differences that they compliment each other where large volumes of contaminated soil need to be remediated in short time. Soil washing is a chemical-physical process which is commonly used for soil contaminated with heavy metal, mineral oil, tar and other organic pollutants. Soil ...

  • Protecting soil in fire-ravaged landscapes

    Following a wildfire, there is often the potential for devastating storm-induced erosion and mudslides. To prevent this possibility, teams of scientists work on these scared landscapes to quickly assess the erosion potential and potential mitigation strategies. By using digital soil and fire severity data, coupled with a Geographic Information Systems (GIS), the process is made much simpler. A ...

  • Do nanoparticles affect the health of the soil ecosystem?

    New research reveals that many microorganisms, including bacteria and protozoa, show little sensitivity to fullerene nanoparticles applied to soil samples. However, fast-growing bacteria decreased in number and the genetic diversity of bacteria and protozoa altered slightly. This could affect the bottom of the food chain, which may have long-term implications for the overall health of the soil ...

  • New LEADQuick™ lead in soil test kit

    Lead exposure can cause serious health problems. When lead is absorbed into the body, it can cause brain damage and harm other vital organs. It’s common to find 15 to 40 parts per million (PPM) Lead in soil, which can also be expressed as milligrams per kilogram of lead (mg/kg). Soil lead levels can increase to several thousand mg/kg as a result of contamination by lead in urban areas due ...

  • Silver nanoparticles in sewage sludge harmful to soil microorganisms

    Recent research has found that silver nanoparticles in sewage sludge, which is used on agricultural land as a fertiliser, can be toxic to soil microorganisms. The researchers calculated that a maximum of 30mg of silver nanoparticles per kilogram of sludge can be applied to land before harm occurs, based on typical application rates in Germany of five tons per hectare of farmland every three ...

  • Wastewater treatment lowers pathogen levels

    A recent study by a team of researchers at the University of Arizona has tracked the incident of pathogens in biosolids over a 19 year period in one major U.S. city. In the same study, the researchers also analyzed pathogen levels in biosolids at 18 wastewater treatment plants in the United States. Their analysis indicates pathogens levels have dropped since the implementation of federal ...
