MINIMIZING THE HEALTH RISKS FROM HYDROCARBON CONTAMINATED SOILS BY USING ELECTRIC FIELD-BASED TREATMENT FOR SOIL REMEDIATION
Istrate, I.A., D.M. Cocarta, Z. Wu, and M.A. Stoian.
Sustainability 10(1):253(2018)

Lab experiments were conducted using an electric field-based treatment as a possible solution for remediation of soil contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons and PAHs. Hydrocarbon content declined significantly after 20 d of treatment at 15 V (specific voltage of 1 V/cm), around 50% for TPHs and 46% for PAHs. The data demonstrated to what extent the applied technology ensured an acceptable risk under the same exposure conditions for industrial workers. http://www.mdpi.com/2071-1050/10/1/253/pdf
