Apatite and Chitin Amendments Promote Microbial Activity and Augment Metal Removal in Marine Sediments

Abstract

In situ amendments are a promising approach to enhance removal of metal contaminants from diverse environments including soil, groundwater and sediments. Apatite and chitin were selected and tested for copper, chromium, and zinc metal removal in marine sediment samples. Microbiological, molecular biological and chemical analyses were applied to investigate… (More)
