Abstract:
This study investigated the potential treatability of a representative soil sample, holding a complex mixture of metals, organic and inorganic contaminants, from the site of a Former Manufactured Gas Plant (FMGP) using a combination of soil washing technique and bioremediation. The contaminants treated included a range of heavy metals (lead, chromium, copper, mercury etc), inorganic chemicals (chlorides, sulphates, cyanides etc), and organic compounds (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), Gasoline Range Organics (GRO), Diesel Range Organics (DRO), Methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE), and benzene etc).
