Removal of 2,4-dinitrotoluene from concrete using bioremediation, agar extraction, and photocatalysis

Abstract

Three methods,i.e. bioremediation by application of bacteria-laden agar, physical absorption of DNT by agar, or illumination by UV light were evaluated for the removal of 2,4-dinitrotoluene (DNT) from building-grade concrete. DNT biodegradation byPseudomonas putida TOD was turned “on” and “off” by using toluene as a co-substrate thus allowing for rate… (More)
