The use of a combined process of surfactant-aided soil washing and coagulation for PAH-contaminated soils treatment
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) persist in soils due to their low volatility, low water solubility and low biodegradability, all of which make it difficult to remove this type of compound from soils. The work ...
Effect of the cathode material on the removal of nitrates by electrolysis in non-chloride media
In this work, the effect of the cathode material (conductive diamond, stainless steel, silicon carbide, graphite or lead) and the current density (150–1400 A m−2) on the removal of nitrates from aqueous solutions is studied ...
Electrokinetic transport of diesel-degrading microorganisms through soils of different textures using electric fields
(Taylor & Francis Group, 2012-01-13)
The mobilisation of diesel-degrading microorganisms in soils of three different textures (sandy, clay and silty) using electrokinetic techniques was studied. The mobilisation tests were performed using a laboratory-scale ...
Electrochemical denitrificacion with chlorides using DSA and BDD anodes
In this work, the electrochemical denitrification of solutions containing chlorides is studied with two different types of anode materials: O2-dimensionally stable anodes (DSA) and boron doped diamond (BDD). First of all, ...
Electrocoagulation of the effluents from surfactant-aided soil-remediation processes
The work described here concerns the electrochemical coagulation of effluents obtained in a surfactant-aided soil-remediation processes, in which phenanthrene was extracted from a clay soil using a sodium dodecyl sulphate ...
