Microbial activity in soils following steam treatment

  title={Microbial activity in soils following steam treatment},
  author={Ruth Ellen Richardson and C. Andrew James and Vishvesh K. Bhupathiraju and Lisa Alvarez-Cohen},
Steam enhanced extraction (SEE) is an aquifer remediation technique that can be effective at removing the bulk of non-aqueous phase liquid (NAPL) contamination from the subsurface, particularly highly volatile contaminants. However, low volatility compounds such as polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are less efficientlyremoved by this process. This research evaluated the effects of steam injection on soilmicrobial activity, community structure, and the potential for biodegradation of… CONTINUE READING
