The use of a combination of electrokinetic remediation and phytoremediation to decontaminate two metal-polluted soils has been demonstrated in laboratory-scale reactors. One soil was heavily contaminated with copper, the other with cadmium and arsenic (2500 microg g(-1) Cu; 300-400 microg g(-1) Cd and 230 microg g(-1) As, respectively). Test reactors with two separated chambers, each with a capacity of 5.25 kg soil, were constructed, then the respective chambers were filled with either a… CONTINUE READING
