abstract

The impact of Polynuclear Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) on sediments, together with the ultimate transport and migration of constituent chemicals in their dissolved or sorbed states, has led to environmentalists to develop several techniques for cleaning contaminated sediments. Dredging operations for opening new channels or just for maintenance of the existing channels will resuspend the sediments increasing the release of PAHs into the aquatic environment.

The impact of Polynuclear Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) on sediments, together with the ultimate transport and migration of constituent chemicals in their dissolved or sorbed states, has led to environmentalists to develop several techniques for cleaning contaminated sediments.

Cleanup of petroleum contaminated sediments using reactors is presented in this paper. Applicability of biological treatment alone or in combination with other technologies is discussed in detail.
