Perhaps the most common form of soil and groundwater contamination at both industry and government sites is caused by the spillage or leakage of petroleum hydro-carbons. From the large oils spills that attract inter-national media attention to the leaking underground tanks that have shut down many a corner gas station, hydrocarbon contamination is a widespread problem that has spawned both serious scientific research and various pseudo-scientific "snake-oil" approaches to bioremediation.
Applied Bioremediation of Petroleum Hydrocarbons draws upon the experience of seasoned bioremediation professionals from around the world to provide sound scientific and engineering approaches to hydrocarbon bioremediation, with an emphasis on pilot- and field-scale applications.
The first section of this volume covers bioremediation markets, general technology overviews, and selected case studies. Subsequent sections include articles on crude oil spills in marine environments; heavy-metal co-contamination; steam injection; nitrate-based bioremediation; land farming; nutrient addition; confined aquifers, anaerobic biodegradation; free-product recovery technologies; bioremediation in low-permeability soils and rock; biopile soil treatment; field-scale case studies; oily waste organics as soil amendments;BTEX degradation in a biofilter; factant-aided recovery; mass transport in BTEX removal; electron acceptor selection and delivery strategies; and electrokinetic moisture and nutrient control in unsaturated soils.
