Leaching of heavy metals from contaminated soils: an experimental and modeling study.
In this paper, we characterize the leaching of heavy metals (Ni, Cu, Zn, Cd, and Pb) from eight contaminated soils over a wide range of pH (pH 0.4-12) using an original approach based on batchExpand

Reactive transport codes for subsurface environmental simulation
A general description of the mathematical and numerical formulations used in modern numerical reactive transport codes relevant for subsurface environmental simulations is presented. The formulationsExpand

Chromium remediation or release? Effect of iron(II) sulfate addition on chromium(VI) leaching from columns of chromite ore processing residue.
Chromite ore processing residue (COPR), derived from the so-called high lime processing of chromite ore, contains high levels of Cr(III) and Cr(VI) and has a pH between 11 and 12. Ferrous sulfate,Expand

Effect of accelerated aging of MSWI bottom ash on the leaching mechanisms of copper and molybdenum.
The effect of accelerated aging of Municipal Solid Waste Incinerator (MSWI) bottom ash on the leaching of Cu and Mo was studied using a "multisurface" modeling approach, based on surface complexationExpand

Evaluation of a generic multisurface sorption model for inorganic soil contaminants.
The performance of a multisurface sorption model approach, composed of well-accepted surface complexation models in combination with published "generic" parameter sets, is evaluated for its possibleExpand

The implications of integrated assessment and modelling studies for the future remediation of chromite ore processing residue disposal sites.
Chromite ore processing residue (COPR) waste from a former chromium chemical works (1830-1968) is still contaminating groundwater in Glasgow, Scotland, with carcinogenic hexavalent chromium, Cr(VI).Expand

Sorption kinetics of strontium in porous hydrous ferric oxide aggregates I. The Donnan diffusion model.
Sorption of ions by hydrous ferric oxide (HFO) often shows a fast initial sorption reaction followed by a much slower sorption process. The second step is diffusion-controlled and can continue forExpand

Test method selection, validation against field data, and predictive modelling for impact evaluation of stabilised waste disposal.
In setting criteria for landfill classes in Annex II of the EU Landfill Directive, it proved to be impossible to derive criteria for stabilised monolithic waste due to the lack of information onExpand

The effect of EDTA and fulvic acid on Cd, Zn, and Cu toxicity to a bioluminescent construct (pUCD607) of Escherichia coli.
The hypothesis, that metal toxicity is dominated by free ion activity, was tested by comparing calculated metal activities with measured toxic responses to a genetically modified, luminescentExpand
