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 soil with H2O2 on was studied. In both experiments the H2O2 dosage was 0.4 g H2O2/g soil. In completely H2O2−saturated soil the removal of… CONTINUE READING
