Title
Bioremediation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) contaminated soil using composting approaches
Output type: Journal article
Journal title: Critical Reviews in Environmental Science and Technology
Month/year of publication: May 2004
Pagination: 249-289
Volume: 34(3)
ISSN: 1064-3389
DOI: 10.1080/10643380490434119 ?
Research group: 5 - Infrastructure and Environment (IIE)
Co-authors: Beck, A.J., Lopez-Real, J.
Other relevant details: Paper reports a comprehensive study of composting for bioremediation of PAH-contaminated waste. It evaluates critically prior research to assess the relative effectiveness of different composting approaches, determine optimal composting operation conditions, and identify the limitations and advantages compared with other solutions. Work funded by Cleanaway Ltd and London Remade through the Entrust scheme. Paper led to collaboration with Institute of Microbiology, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.

Title
Biosorption of phenol and chlorophenols by acclimated residential biomass under bioremediation conditions in a sandy aquifer
Output type: Journal article
Journal title: Water Research
Month/year of publication: January 2004
Pagination: 267-276
Volume: 38(2)
ISSN: 0043-1354
DOI: 10.1016/j.watres.2003.09.032 ?
Research group: 5 - Infrastructure and Environment (IIE)
Co-authors: Galil, N.I.
Other relevant details: Paper describes for the first time the biosorption capacity of phenol and chlorophenols on residential biomass collected from a sandy aquifer previously polluted by accidental spills, rather than nutrient-rich grown biomass. With such data contaminant-fate mathematical models allow appropriate remedial actions to be determined. Work funded by Stephen and Nancy Grand Water Research Institute (Israel), Asociación Venezolana Amigos del Technion (Venezuela) and Foundation Lady Davis (Canada). Work led to award of Rieger JNF Fellowship in Environmental Studies (Rieger Foundation, Santa Barbara, USA). Contributed to award of Ramón y Cajal Senior Research Fellowship.

Title
Degradation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in an aged coal-tar contaminated soil Ander in-vessel composting conditions
Output type: Journal article
Journal title: Environmental Pollution
Month/year of publication: June 2006
Pagination: 459-468
Volume: 141(3)
ISSN: 0269-7491
DOI: 10.1016/j.envpol.2005.08.066 ?
Research group: 5 - Infrastructure and Environment (IIE)
Co-authors: Beck, A.J., Lopez-Real, J.M.
Other relevant details: Paper describes the use of in-vessel composting as a sustainable bioremediation technology of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) present in an aged-coal tar contaminated soil. Also is first publication which investigates systematically the effect of critical operational parameters of an in-vessel composting unit on the removal of PAHs and identifies the optimal operational conditions. Work led to collaboration with the Institute of Microbiology, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.

Title
Investigation of organic matter dynamics during in-vessel composting of aged coal-tar contaminated soil by fluorescence Excitation-Emission Spectroscopy
Output type: Journal article
Journal title: Chemosphere
Month/year of publication: July 2006
Pagination: 839-847
Volume: 64(5)
ISSN: 0045-6535
DOI: 10.1016/j.chemosphere.2005.10.036 ?
Research group: 5 - Infrastructure and Environment (IIE)
Co-authors: Beck, A.J., Lopez-Real, J.M.
Other relevant details: Paper describes use of excitation-emission matrix fluorescence spectroscopy to investigate organic matter dynamics during composting of green waste and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) contaminated soil. Provides first evidence of progressive mineralization/humification, and origin of humic substances in relation to PAH losses and organic matter losses. Work funded by Cleanaway Ltd and London Remade through the Entrust scheme; and led to collaboration with the Institute of Microbiology, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.
