USE OF ACTIVATED CARBON FOR SOIL BIOREMEDIATION

  • Conference paper

Part of the NATO Science Series book series (NAIV,volume 69)

Abstract

The use of activated carbon may help overcome the toxicity of organic pollutants to microbes and plants during soil bioremediation. Experiments were conducted with 3,4-dichloroaniline (DCA), 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT), and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) to demonstrate that activated carbon (AC) can reduce the toxicity of readily available chemicals in soil by transferring them to a less toxic soil fraction.
