Abstract/Contents:Describes "an experience of decontamination (bioremediation) of a soil, used as green area that was polluted by hydrocarbons >C12 and Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) of industrial origin." Details methods and materials used in the study, stating that "the contaminated area was enclosed and then, with suitable agricultural machines, the soil was ploughed and then tilled at 0-40 cm [centimeters]. A biological promoter based on selected useful microorganisms (bacteria and fungi), enzymes (mainly laccase, amylase, lipase, protease, cellulase), nutrients and supports was then applied to the soil at the rate of 200 grams per cubic meter. The area was tilled again for a uniform mixing of the biological promoter with the soil." Reports that "the fast degradation kinetics is certainly due to the application of biological promoters because in the previous 3 years [before the study] the concentration had never decreased in a significant way." Concludes that "as expected, the kinetics of degradation of PCBs was slower than the degradation of hydrocarbons. However, compared with the time considered in literature and the observations done during the monitoring period before the treatment with biological promoters, the result is extremely positive and opens the way to interesting perspectives in the remediation of soil used as green areas and polluted by bioaccumulable xenobiotics."
