The influence of small- and large-scale composting on the dissipation of pesticide residues in a biopurification matrix.


BACKGROUND Pesticides are efficiently retained and degraded in the organic matrix of a biopurification system. However, as this matrix mineralizes slowly over time, nutrients will start to become depleted and thus a decay in biomass will probably occur. At that moment, the efficiency of the system decreases and the matrix should be replaced. The spent… (More)
