Metal associations in soils before and after EDTA extractive decontamination: implications for the effectiveness of further clean-up procedures.
The distribution of Pb, Ni and Zn in two contaminated soils was determined before and after treating the soils with an EDTA solution. After the EDTA extraction, the proportion of Pb accumulated inExpand

Hydrogen sulphide adsorption on a waste material used in bioreactors
Abstract The biofilter packing, support or bed material, is considered to be the “heart” of the biofiltration system, especially when it also provides active biomass. Furthermore, when biodegradationExpand
