Landfarming of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and mineral oil contaminated sediments

Abstract

Important in this study was the landfarm on Kreekraksluizen where landfarming was investigated in cooperation with RIZA, during a period of more than 10 years, which made it possible to predict the effect of landfarming in the long term. The database for this site is unique and will be extended in the future. The large experimental research on Kreekraksluizen was supported by several studies at other sites and in the laboratories of Alterra. As a traditional management practice, slightly polluted sediments from ditches in the rural area of The Netherlands are spread over adjacent land. In experiments on the island of Goeree-Overflakkee, it has been shown that the practice of spreading of thin layers also led to fast, slow and very slow degradation of the PAH's present
