Five soil size aggregate fractions, corresponding to coarse (500-840 μm), medium (200-350 μm), fine (75-200 μm) sand, silt (10-75 μm) and clay (<4 μm), were artificially contaminated with diesel, and thermally treated using a laboratory scale apparatus to investigate the effect of soil texture on contaminant adsorption and removal. Ex situ thermal process was simulated using helium as the carrier gas at a flow rate of 1.5 L min(-1), different temperatures (100-300 °C) and different treatment… CONTINUE READING
