Ripening of PAH and TPH polluted sediments : determination and quantification of bioremediation parameters

Research output: Thesisinternal PhD, WU

Abstract

In this study, bioremediation parameters were determined and quantified for different clayey dredged sediments. The research described in this thesis increased the insight into the individual processes of physical ripening, biochemical ripening – including PAH and TPH degradation – that result from drainage of disposed water-logged sediments. This increased insight can be used to optimize conditions for ripening of dredged sediments at upland sediment disposal sites
