The effect of temperature on the reductive dechlorination in sediments of the PCDD/F-contaminated Kymijoki River, Finland was assessed with 1,2,3,4-tetrachlorodibenzofuran (1,2,3,4-TeCDF) at various temperatures and with co-amendment of 2,3,4,6-tetrachlorophenol (2,3,4,6-TeCP) in laboratory microcosms. The dechlorination rate of 1,2,3,4-TeCDF increased with incubation temperature, with TeCDF half-lives of 2.1 y at 21°C, 3.9 y at 15°C, and 19.0 y at 4°C. Co-amendment with 2,3,4,6-TeCP reduced… CONTINUE READING
