The interest of simultaneously combining chemical (Fenton's reaction) and biological treatments for the degradation of a high molecular weight polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon benzo[a]pyrene (BaP) has been studied in laboratory tests. An optimal concentration of 1.5x10(-3) M H(2)O(2) as Fenton's reagent was firstly determined as being compatible with the growth of Fusarium solani, the Deuteromycete fungus used in the biodegradation process. For the enhancement of BaP solubilisation… CONTINUE READING
