Thermally enhanced bioremediation of LNAPL
Inadvertent releases of petroleum liquids into the environment have led to widespread soil and groundwater contamination. Petroleum liquids, referred to as Light Non-Aqueous Phase Liquid (LNAPL), pose a threat to the environment and human health. The purpose of the research described herein was to evaluate thermally enhanced bioremediation as a sustainable remediation technology for rapid cleanup of LNAPL zones. Thermally enhanced LNAPL attenuation was investigated via a thermal microcosm study that considered six different temperatures: 4¡ÆC, 9¡ÆC, 22¡ÆC, 30¡ÆC, 35¡ÆC, and 40¡ÆC. Microcosms ...
