(Virginia Tech, 2006-01-23)
Rikke Granum Andersen In situ characterization and quantification of phytoremediation removal mechanisms for naphthalene at a creosote-contaminated site Phytoremediation is an attractive remediation technology due to its ...
Analytical Methods of Testing Solid Waste and Leachate to Determine Landfill Stability and Landfill Biodegradation Enhancement
(Virginia Tech, 2009-09-10)
This was a study undertaken to investigate municipal solid waste (MSW) landfill stability parameters and landfill leachate properties to determine how solid waste and leachate characteristics can be used to describe ...
Solid Waste Biodegradation Enhancements and the Evaluation of Analytical Methods Used to Predict Waste Stability
(Virginia Tech, 2002-05-02)
Conventional landfills are built to dispose of the increasing amount of municipal solid waste (MSW) generated each year. A relatively new type of landfill, called a bioreactor landfill, is designed to optimize the ...
High-Intensity Shear as a Wet Sludge Disintegration Technology and a Mechanism for Floc Structure Analysis
(Virginia Tech, 2001-05-29)
By shearing activated sludge using a high shear rotor stator device, bioavailable proteinaceous material can be produced. Operation at elevated temperatures, serves to increase the amount of material that is rendered ...

(Virginia Tech, 2004-11-17)
Investigating the Biostimulating Effects of ESO Addition to a TCE Contaminated Site Kelli M. Mattson Abstract Remediation of chlorinated ethene contaminated sites presents a problem for the environmental industry. Many ...
Evaluation of Anaerobic Biodegradation of Organic Carbon Extracted from Aquifer Sediment
(Virginia Tech, 2006-09-06)
In conjunction with ongoing studies to develop a method for quantifying potentially biodegradable organic carbon (Rectanus et al 2005), this research was conducted to evaluate the extent to which organic carbon extracted ...
