Potential for Phytoremediation of Polychlorinated Biphenyl-(PCB)-Contaminated Soil
Weathered soils contaminated with commercial-grade Aroclor 1260 from three sites in Canada were used to investigate the polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) phytoextraction potential of nine plant speciesExpand

Remediation of hydrocarbon contaminated soils in the Canadian Arctic by landfarming
Abstract One of the preferred methods for the remediation of fuel contaminated soil today is landfarming. This is particularly true for remote sites because the method requires minimal equipment andExpand

The use of biochar to reduce soil PCB bioavailability to Cucurbita pepo and Eisenia fetida.
Biochar is a carbon rich by-product produced from the thermal decomposition of organic matter under low oxygen concentrations. Currently many researchers are studying the ability of biochar toExpand

Extraction and speciation of arsenic in plants grown on arsenic contaminated soils.
A sequential arsenic extraction method was developed that yielded extraction efficiencies (EE) that were approximately double those using current methods for terrestrial plants. The method wasExpand

The effects of repeated planting, planting density, and specific transfer pathways on PCB uptake by Cucurbita pepo grown in field conditions.
An in situ field investigation into the potential of PCB phytoextraction by Cucurbita pepo ssp. pepo (pumpkin) plants was continued for a second year at a field site known to be contaminated with aExpand

In situ application of activated carbon and biochar to PCB-contaminated soil and the effects of mixing regime.
The in situ use of carbon amendments such as activated carbon (AC) and biochar to minimize the bioavailability of organic contaminants is gaining in popularity. In the first in situ experimentExpand

Remediation of former military bases in the Canadian Arctic
Abstract This paper describes novel aspects of the remediation of three former military bases in the Canadian Arctic. At Iqaluit, the site has been totally cleaned up. All buildings were demolished,Expand

Bioavailability assessments following biochar and activated carbon amendment in DDT-contaminated soil.
The effects of 2.8% w/w granulated activated carbon (GAC) and two types of biochar (Burt's and BlueLeaf) on DDT bioavailability in soil (39 μg/g) were investigated using invertebrates (EiseniaExpand
