Treatment of Lindane and Endosulfan in Soil
December 1, 2006 12:13am CST
A former farmland was determined to be a “hotspot” and is heavily contaminated with lindane and endosulfan with concentration ranging from 50,000-760,000ppm. The soil is very high in humic and moisture content. In-situ treatment is being proposed using solar- or UV-based technologies coupled with zero-valent iron and should result to about 95% degradation. I woulf like to request for a schematic of the pilot-plant reactor that must be use using the above treatment. If not, please suggest better treatment alternatives and provide the reactor design.
