An experimental application compared three methods for remediation of contaminated sites to soils from a former industrial area polluted with organic compounds. Electroremediation and combined phyto-electrochemical and electrooxidation treatment were applied to nine soil samples collected at two depths (0.2 and 0.4 m). The electrochemical treatment and electrooxidation had an efficiency of 20% while the two combined methods had efficiencies of 42.5% for electrooxidation (with H2O2) and 20% for phyto-electroremediation with poinsettias.
