Effect of Modified Fenton’s Reaction on Microbial Activity and Removal of PAHs in Creosote Oil Contaminated Soil

Abstract

This study describes the removal of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) from creosote oil contaminated soil by modified Fenton’s reaction in laboratory-scale column experiments and subsequent aerobic biodegradation of PAHs by indigenous bacteria during incubation of the soil. The effect of hydrogen peroxide addition for 4 and 10 days and saturation of… (More)
