The feasibility of large-scale fungal bioaugmentation was evaluated by assessing the ability of the lignin-degrading fungus Phanerochaete sordida to decrease the soil concentrations of pentachlorophenol (PCP) and 13 priority pollutant polynuclear aromatic (PNA) creosote components in a field-demonstration study.

Urban gardens are most often placed in locations and on land in which soil contaminants reflect past practices and often contain elevated levels of metals and organic by: 5. Landfarming is an ex-situ waste treatment process that is performed in the upper soil zone or in biotreatment cells.

Contaminated soils, sediments, or sludges are transported to the landfarming site, incorporated into the soil surface and periodically turned over to aerate the mixture. Landfarming commonly uses a clay or composite liner to intercept leaching contaminants and prevent.

Creosote contaminated soil was excavated and mixed to construct 12 study piles, 4 m long×3 m wide×1 m high, in three randomized blocks of four treatments, namely controls, vented, vented with 1% kenaf (by volume) and vented with 1% kenaf and Cladosporium sp. Sampling was at 45 day intervals for one year, and soil samples were extracted Author: Kelly Hurt, Hamid Borazjani, Susan V.

Many chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturers operated on site for over 90 years. Improper waste storage and disposal contaminated surrounding soil and groundwater.

EPA added the site to the National Priorities List (NPL) in The acre Burlington Northern (Brainerd/Baxter Plant) is a former railroad tie treatment plant by Burlington Northern Railroad in northern Minnesota, USA. The unlined creosote and fuel oil lagoons, which had been used to treat the ties contaminatedthe site was listed as a United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) : Brainerd and Baxter.

Further application of fungal-based bioaugmentation was evaluated for the remediation of creosote-contaminated soil at a wood-preserving site in West Virginia (Lamar, White, and Ashley, This decision document presents the selected remedial action for the American Creosote Works, Inc., in Winnfield, Louisiana.

This Record of Decision (ROD) addresses the source of hazardous substances, which includes surface sludges, subsurface pooled creosote and pentachlorophenol liquids defined as nonaqueous phased liquids (NAPLs), and contaminated soil and debris.

creosote, and then four feet more. Selected soil samples will be analyzed to determine the extent of contamination. This effort will help determine which contaminated soils will need to be excavated and thermally treated, and which can be treated in place on site. In addition, groundwater and soil samples will be collected to be used for.

The Fenton's reagent (hydrogen peroxide and iron (II)) treatment of pentachlorophenol (PCP) was investigated as a basis for the on site and in situ treatment of contaminated surface soils.

POTENTIAL FOR HUMAN EXPOSURE. Children are exposed to creosote via the same routes that adults are, and small children are more likely than adults to be in close contact with yard dirt or playground dirt, lawns, and indoor (carpet) dust, all of which may be contaminated with creosote residues.

Because of a tendency to put their unwashed hands. Abstract. The effects of nutrient addition on the in situ biodegradation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in creosote contaminated soil were studied in soil columns taken from various soil strata at a wood preserving plant in Norway.

Three samples were used: one from the topsoil (0– m), one from an organic rich layer (2– m) and one from the sandy aquifer (–5 m).Cited by: creosote sludge and liquid were removed.

A total oftons of contaminated soil and sediment from the site and adjacent stream were excavated, thermally treated, and placed back on-site.

The ROD required excavation and LTTD treatment to 3 mg/kg BAP equivalents for contaminated soil up to 2 feet. Frequent Questions about the Final Rule: (e.g., polyvinyl chloride and other plastics, drywall, concrete, aggregates, dirt, and asbestos), and wood treated with creosote, pentachlorophenol, chromated copper arsenate, or other copper, chromium, or arsenical preservatives.

There are also best management practices for positive and negative. Wood treatment products may contaminate soil, water and sediment on and beyond wood treatment sites, and this contamination may persist in the long term.

Off-site contamination may be aggravated by incidents such as spills, fires and flooding, as well as drainage of waste into off-site ditches or unlined reservoirs. These. Transportation of the contaminated soil off site for disposal, with treatment as necessary. The OU3 ROD, signed in Septemberestablished the following RAOs for soils and groundwater: Prevent human exposure via direct contact, inhalation, and ingestion of contaminated soils, considering the future potential residential site use.

Environmental Protection Agency Environmental. Clean Earth is dedicated to recycling every ton possible on every project. In order to increase recycling rates for our customers Clean Earth provides in-depth environmental support to assure every possible ton of waste accepted by Clean Earth that can be recycled, is recycled.

For our soil recycling projects, Clean Earth characterizes the contaminated soil from a project site. Treatment of Petroleum-Contaminated Soils.

Treatment Options (continued) Landfarming. In landfarming, as in composting, petroleum products are biodegraded by spreading the contaminated soil on the land surface in a relatively thin layer.

However, in landfarming, air is not mechanically introduced into the soil with the same frequency as in. Recovery of Metals from Sludges and Wastewaters (Pollution Technology Review) (No. ) E.R.

TRP Chapter 6.The proposed plan was the third phase of a hazardous waste cleanup of a former railroad tie creosoting facility.

It involved shipp cubic yards of excavated creosote-tainted soil off site for treatment and disposal. The soil cleanup was estimated to take two years to complete."Innovative technology" as applied to the cleanup of ground water and soil is an elusive term, for two primary reasons.

First, government agency representatives and others involved in waste-site cleanup may have different perspectives on which technologies are innovative.
