DUARTE MEDINA, Ivonne; BUSTOS BUSTOS, Erika  and  TEUTLI LEON, Margarita. Compost Aided Electrokinetic Remediation of an Hydrocarbon Polluted Soil. J. Mex. Chem. Soc [online]. 2014, vol.58, n.3, pp.343-347. ISSN 1870-249X.

An electrokinetic treatment was applied to a weathered hydrocarbon polluted soil compost amended. Results have shown an enhancement in hydrocarbon removal since initial concentration was 18700 mg Kg−1, electroremediated soil ended with 7410 mg-Kg−1, while the compost aided electroremediated soil lowered its concentration to 3250 mg-Kg−1. GC-MS soil analysis evidenced complex molecules at the anode section, while simplest molecules were at the cathode section, in this section survival of Eisenia Andrei worms was higher than 90%.

Keywords : electrokinetics; compost; hydrocarbon polluted soil; electrolyte; residual toxicity.
