Removal of oxyfluorfen from spiked soils using electrokinetic fences
In this work, an accidental spill of Fluoxyl (commercial herbicide containing oxyfluorfen) is simulated in a pilot plant with a soil volume of 70 × 50 × 50 cm3. The transport of Fluoxyl obtained by the free diffusion of ...
Multiphysics Implementation of Electrokinetic Remediation Models for Natural Soils and Porewaters
Models of electrokinetic soil remediation systems have been developed significantly in recent decades. A wide range of physicochemical phenomena occurs in this type of process, which makes it difficult to capture all of ...
Scale-up of the electrokinetic fence technology for the removal of pesticides: Part II: Does size matter for removal of herbicides?
This work reports results of the application of electrokinetic fence technology in a 32 m3 -prototype which contains soil polluted with 2,4-D and oxyfluorfen, focusing on the evaluation of the mechanisms that describe the ...
Scale-up on electrokinetic remediation: Engineering and technological parameters
This study analyses the effect of the scale-up of electrokinetic remediation (EKR) processes in natural soils. A procedure is proposed to prepare soils based on a compacting process to obtaining soils with similar moisture ...
Scale-up of the electrokinetic fence technology for the removal of pesticides: Part I: Some notes about the transport of inorganic species
This work describes the application electrokinetic fence technology to a soil polluted with herbicides in a large prototype containing 32 m3 of soil. It compares performance in this large facility with results previously ...
