Black carbons (BC) which result from the incomplete combustion of farm waste [man-made (burned) BC] are highly absorbent. In Taiwan, the burning of farm waste known as slash and burn is common. The BCs from the burning may present an environmental challenge. Little is known about the effect of BCs on the transport of hydrophobic organic contaminants (HOC). This study investigates the sorption of anthracene and naphthalene to BCs in soil and efficiency of the surfactants Tween 80 and Triton X… CONTINUE READING
