Biological transformation of tetrachloroethylene (PCE) in silty clay samples by ionic injection of lactate under electric fields is evaluated. To prepare contaminated samples, a silty clay slurry was mixed with PCE, inoculated with KB-1(®) dechlorinators and was consolidated in a 40 cm long cell. A current density between 5.3 and 13.3 A m(-2) was applied across treated soil samples while circulating electrolytes containing 10 mg L(-1) lactate concentration between the anode and cathode… CONTINUE READING
