Effects of the Desorption and Dissolution of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons on Phytoremediation at a Creosote-Contaminated Site
(Virginia Tech, 2002-10-14)
Creosote, containing many high molecular weight hydrophobic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH's), is present in the subsurface environment at the Oneida Tie-Yard in Oneida, Tennessee. Phytoremediation using hybrid ...
Evaluation of Stability Parameters for Landfills
(Virginia Tech, 2002-08-02)
There are more than three thousand landfills in the United States, in which approximately 55% (1998, U. S. EPA 1999) of the MSW generated in the US is buried. The majority of the landfills are conventional, but in the ...
Phytoremediation Mechanisms of a Creosote-Contaminated Site
(Virginia Tech, 2001-05-17)
In 1990, creosote contamination was discovered at the location of a railroad tie treatment facility active in the 1950s until 1973. In 1997, a phytoremediation field study was implemented with the planting of 1,026 hybrid ...
Assessment of Intrinsic Bioremediation at a PCE Contaminated Site
(Virginia Tech, 2000-08-18)
Groundwater parameter analysis, microcosm experiments, and microcosms modeling were undertaken to assess the potential of Monitored Natural Attenuation as a remediation strategy at Site 12 at the Naval Amphibious Base (NAB) ...
Anaerobic Digestion: Factors Effecting Odor Generation
(Virginia Tech, 2005-07-19)
Land application of anaerobically stabilized biosolids is a beneficial method of handling the solid residuals from a wastewater treatment plant. One of the main issues that restrict land application of biosolids is nuisance ...
